The Guardian technology uses advanced computer vision technology to detect and minimise driver fatigue and distraction events and associated accidents in commercial fleet applications. It provides real-time, in-cabin alerts when fatigue or distraction is detected by the driver facing sensors, which work in all light conditions including night driving and when the driver is wearing sunglasses.

Paul Angelatos, general manager of Fleet, Rail and Off-Road at Seeing Machines, said: "We are delighted to be working with John Christner Trucking. Adoption of Guardian, our fatigue and distraction prevention technology, is building momentum worldwide and this agreement further strengthens our position as a leading provider of transport safety technology.”

The contract is the latest in a series of good news for Seeing Machines, who last month secured a programme design contract with a major Tier 1 partner, a global US-headquartered automotive original equipment manufacturer.
