SYDNEY, Oct. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Presien
and Position Partners today announced a distribution agreement to
expand access and implementation of Blindsight, the simple,
pre-trained AI safety system for heavy industry. By helping plant
operators prevent collisions with real-time alerts and
comprehensive safety reporting, Blindsight effortlessly protects
workers in the most dynamic industrial environments.
Unlike other alert systems and safety solutions, Blindsight's
integrated camera and AI software sees, understands, and alerts
operators to potential hazards. The Blindsight system can be
installed on mobile plant or fixed infrastructure, anywhere.
"We developed Blindsight because we wanted to create a world
where every worker is safe, and every employer is successful," said
Mark Richards, CEO of Presien.
"Using AI allows us to protect workers in the most complex of
situations and quantify safety metrics, all at once."
Blindsight's pre-trained AI automatically detects people,
vehicles, traffic cones, and custom objects unique to each
worksite. With automatic, over the air updates, the system is
constantly learning and improving. The system's in-cab visual,
auditory, and haptic alerts immediately notify operators to the
presence and direction of dangers in real-time. Blindsight can also
easily be set up for specific use cases, such as when a plant is
operating in reverse or inside a geofenced area.
Supporting employee safety at every level of the organization,
Blindsight automates health and safety reporting for operations and
compliance. Videos and detection-event data are available in the
cloud 24x7 and can be viewed in real-time via Blindsight's mobile
and web apps.
Through the distribution agreement between Presien and Position
Partners, these capabilities will be available in Australia and New
Zealand for the first time.
"Increasing safety around working heavy machinery is of
paramount importance to our customers, so we are excited to
announce our agreement with Presien and introduce Blindsight to the
building, civil, and mining sectors in Australasia," said
Martin Nix, CEO of Position
Partners. "Feedback from early adopters has been extremely
positive, particularly around Blindsight's automated detection of
people without the need of a wearable tag. It is an excellent
example of how Artificial Intelligence can be used to benefit
