In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, Seeing Machines general manager Patrick Nolan and flight simulation and training lead Alexander Robinson join host Phil Tarrant to discuss the work that they are completing in the human factors science sector to create AI technology that observes driver habits and attention, and the opportunities that such technology is presenting in training within the RAAF.

They will reflect on the history of the company, having been founded out of the Australian National University in Canberra, the challenge of matching technological capabilities with industry requirements, and how the scope of transport vehicles that they are serving has grown and developed.

Nolan and Robinson will address how their technology is being implemented in pilot training with the RAAF, the type of data that can be obtained and how that information is being best utilised, and how it is aiding in the success and cost effectiveness of pilot training.

Finally, they analyse their point of difference in the market against those with similar product offerings to Seeing Machines, discuss how their technology is being implemented into various vehicles and systems, and the projects that they are currently involved in within defence industry.
