Farming is one of our most important industries, but also our most dangerous. Powerful machines, long days and lone working often create environments that are dangerous for operators and others alike.
Incidents involving accidental contact with machinery are all but too common on farms across the country, and a main contributor to the shocking statistics on farm safety that we have in the UK. Each year, on average, 50 people lose their lives, while up to 5,000 more receive serious injuries on UK farms. Machine Eye aims to reduce the likelihood and severity of these accidents, saving lives and making our farms safer places for all.
Machine Eye is designed to work alongside operators in creating a safer environment. It does not limit productivity, nor require operator intervention or control to operate – it’s an entirely automatic system.
Where operators work close to active machines, Machine Eye provides an active, intelligent solution, that provides dynamic demarkation around the machine; augments and enhances the operators situational awareness; and ultimately, provides a safe environment around that machine for all involved.
