Seeing Machines, listed on the London Stock Exchange (AIM: SEE) has over 15 years of research know-how, commercial application and proven expertise in intelligent face and eye tracking technology.
Headquartered in Canberra, Australia and with current operations in North America, Europe, Latin America, Middle East and Asia Pacific, the company pioneers the development and commercialisation of proprietary algorithms and hardware that help machines interpret the human face and eyes in order to understand their state. Seeing Machines is a recognised leader in the application of computer vision related to the analysis of human faces and eyes. We are specialists in high-precision and high-reliability face and eye tracking for critical safety, training, and operational applications and are able to perform these tasks in extreme outdoor and indoor ambient environments.
Expertise and capability
Seeing Machines is a recognised leader in the application of computer vision related to the analysis of human faces and eyes. We are specialists in high precision and high reliability face and eye tracking for critical safety, training, and operational applications and are able to perform these tasks in extreme outdoor and indoor ambient environments. Some of the key measures include:
Head Tracking and Eyelid Tracking: Head tracking provides precise detection and measurement of the frontal area and sides of a subject’s face and head in real-time. The fully automatic, camera-based technology of Seeing Machines returns a comprehensive model of the face that includes the coordinates of all facial features, their current state and their rate of change. This includes a very accurate measure of blink rate and eyelid aperture.
Eye Gaze Tracking: Eye gaze tracking is the measurement of where a person is looking. By directing a safe, invisible light source at a subject’s eye and then using a special camera to track the glint, we can interpret precisely where or what the subject is looking at. When we combine this information with a precise understanding of the real world environment, such as the cabin of a car or cockpit of an airplane, gaze tracking can be used in real-time (or recorded and played back) to help assess exactly how the subject is processing their visual surrounds.
Seeing Machines has recently been working with a range of organisations in the Aviation Industry including; Manufacturers, Carriers, and ANSP’s.
Unique selling points
Our non-intrusive, fully automatic, camera-based technologies do not require the user to wear any form of hardware or sensors. The technology detects and locates a human face and then tracks in real-time without any form of pre-calibration or prior knowledge of the subject. We are able to provide a variety of accurate head and eye related metrics including gaze direction, micro sleep detection and very accurate measures of pupil diameter.
