2014 ACT Chief Minister's Export Awards winners

Canberra-based technology company Seeing Machines has been crowned ACT Exporter of the Year at the 2014 ACT Chief Minister’s Export Awards held on 14 October 2014.

Seeing Machines is renowned for developing state of the art fatigue and distraction monitoring technology, including the Driver Safety System (DSS) which is already being used by mining, commercial road-transport and automotive industries worldwide.

The company, which was founded in 1999, now has 95 employees working across Canberra, San Francisco, Arizona and Tuscany, with export sales accounting for 53% of its revenue.

Seeing Machines recognition as 2014 ACT Exporter of the Year comes a month after the company announced a collaboration deal with Samsung which aims to bring face and eye tracking technology to the consumer electronics market.

"We are delighted to be recognised as the 2014 ACT Exporter of the Year," Seeing Machines CEO Ken Kroger said.

Seeing Machines have also signed a three-year strategic agreement with Electro-Motive Diesel Inc. which will introduce their state-of-the-art Driver Safety System to the rail industry.

Canberra Business Chamber CEO, Chris Faulks, congratulated Seeing Machines on winning the 2014 ACT Exporter of the Year, as well as the Information and Communication Technology category for the second year running.

"Seeing Machines, along with the other 10 category winners, is a prime example of the innovative, global success of ACT exporters who use our country’s capital as a base".

  5. If you are a businessperson who wants to expand the consumer base to gain a foothold in the international arena, then you have to be prepared to send the final products to the consumers globally and to receive the raw materials from different locations of the world. To achieve this successfully, you can make use of the mail forwarding service providers who ensure the safe delivery of the goods on time. Wyoming Mail Forwarding
