Machine Eye has its roots in agriculture. As an industry with fatality rates 21 times higher than all other industries in the UK and Ireland, approx. 150 deaths, and 5000 serious injuries every year in the UK, (Health & Safety Executive) we saw an area for improvement and began developing ‘Machine Eye’.
Today, our technology is at the forefront in providing capability to prevent serious and life changing injuries in the sector.
Machine Eye technology supports the safe operation of machinery for farms, contractors, and primary producers. From tractors to loading shovels, bobcats, to telehandlers, the Machine Eye platform provides a key tool in building safer operations.
In the last 5 years, a third of all fatalities caused by being struck by a moving vehicle have happened in the agricultural sector (Health and Safety Executive). Ensuring safe machinery movements is critical to farm safety.
The Machine Eye risk management platform utilises deep learning AI to continually assess risks and hazards associated with mobile machinery usage on farms and in agriculture, and accurately identifies and interprets the movement of humans around these machines. Using this solution, autonomous decision making can take place to understand if a human is at risk of injury or collision. Our technology uses situational based safety algorithms, to provide a more flexible and co-operative system for safe, sustainable and uninterrupted agricultural operations.
The Machine Eye platform provides operators with real time assistance, situational awareness and alarming to ensure a safe machine-pedestrian interface. The Machine Eye platform also supports management with autonomous auditing (which ensures that pedestrians do not enter “keep out” areas), and other safety critical KPIs. These are displayed to management via an interactive dashboard and reporting function.
Using Machine Eye technology, farms, contractors and primary producers can ensure the risk to both employees and others, from mobile machinery is reduced to a minimum.
The Machine Eye platform provides a variety of productivity efficiencies for agriculture from cost savings such as recruitment and training, sustainable revenues, reduced employee down times, improved workplace safety and improved staff retention as employees feel valued and safer in the workplace.
