In a mission to reduce transport fatalities to zero, Seeing Machines continues to leverage its industry leading driver monitoring system (DMS) technology to protect commercial fleets worldwide. Guardian, the company’s real-time driver fatigue and distraction solution, supports over 800 transport companies with almost 52,000 connections across the globe. In fact, Guardian has been scientifically proven to reduce fatigue-related driving events by over 90 percent.

And now Seeing Machines has taken the next step: leveraging its unparalleled, naturalistic driving data to pinpoint and address the trends surrounding risky driving habits – a crucial step in their mission to minimise preventable accidents.

The 2022-23 Guardian Insights Report delves into deidentified data from 25,202 vehicles across 2,585 fleets in Australia and New Zealand, for the 12-month period to 30 September 2023. Designed to provide a deeper understanding of driver and fleet behaviour, the report answers questions such as:

  • What time of day are professional drivers most distracted?
  • What is the worst month for fatigue-related driving events?
  • And most importantly, what can you do to protect your most valuable asset, your drivers?

“This report demonstrates how, with our proven Guardian technology, we continue to work towards our vision of zero road fatalities, by shedding light on the insights and performance data that influence driver and fleet behaviour” – Paul McGlone, CEO 

This marks the first edition in Seeing Machines’ annual series of Insights Reports; a formal commitment to help track trends and risks over time, with the aim to foster a shift in driver behaviour and ensure more people get home safely.
