Valeo and Seeing Machines, an advanced computer vision technology company that designs AI-powered operator monitoring systems to improve transport safety, have announced a strategic collaboration.

It is aimed at strengthening their position in the driver and occupant monitoring systems (OMS) market.

As part of this agreement, Valeo is transferring its driver monitoring perception software activity to Seeing Machines.

This activity, stemming from the associated acquisition of Valeo-owned, German start-up Asaphus, will now be managed by Seeing Machines. This move will support a world leading position in perception software for interior monitoring.

Marc Vrecko, CEO of Valeo Brain Division said: “Combining our teams with Seeing Machines, we will benefit from the best-in-class perception software to integrate into our hardware and software architecture for driver and occupant monitoring systems. Together, we will be able to provide more competitive solutions and strengthen our market position.”
