Guardian has intervened in more than 70,000 fatigue events and detected more than 3,500,000 distraction events worldwide.
Don’t leave safety to chance – get Guardian on board
Road accidents and the commercial transport industry. All too often they go hand in hand. With any luck, all that might happen is a schedule disruption, but if you’re unlucky, cargo may be damaged, people may be injured, or – in everyone’s worst-case scenario – lives may be lost.
Now, you can stop accidents before they happen, with Guardian, by Seeing Machines. Guardian is an intelligent driver safety solution that uses in-cab sensors to monitor in real time the driver’s levels of fatigue and distraction.
How the system works
Face- and gaze-tracking algorithms measure the driver’s head position and eye closure and, when safety parameters are exceeded, audio alarms and seat vibration are immediately activated. Guardian also features a forward-facing camera which captures critical information about road conditions at the time of the event.
When a fatigue or distraction event is detected, data and footage are immediately relayed to the 24/7 Guardian Centre, which then alerts fleet management and allows them to respond in real time to the developing situation in the cab.
Guardian’s live database and weekly reports help management to understand individual driver behaviours and to analyse fatigue and distraction events in terms of the time of day, the location and speed of the vehicle.
Guardian integrates seamlessly with telematics providers MiX Vision (by MiX Telematics), Geotab and others through a message queue service on the cloud.
Module 4: Risk factors – Speed and inclement weatherThis module investigates the effect that excessive speed has on reducing margins and therefore increasing risk. It also looks at the increased risk when driving in poor weather conditions and strategies to combat this.
Module 5: Drugs and drivingThis module discusses the effects that prescription and recreational drugs and alcohol can have on people ability to safely drive a vehicle. Many people do not realise that certain prescriptions drugs can leave them exposed to a criminal conviction for driving.

Module 7: Advanced fatigueThis module aims to raise awareness and educate participants on the risks of fatigue, how to recognise the signs and strategies to combat fatigue.
Module 8: Advanced journey planningThis module aims to look closely at the factors one must consider when planning more complicated or longer distance trips.
Module 9: Fuel efficient driving stylesThis module looks at how we can all drive our vehicles in a more efficient manner. there are many different techniques that are easy to remember and when implemented assist with a safer and more fuel-efficient drive.
Module 10: Safety features in modern vehiclesThis module looks at the role modern vehicle play in keeping drivers and pedestrians safe. The module focuses on how these features interact with the driver and what the diver needs to be aware of to get maximum protection.

Module 12: Rural roadsThis module investigates the differences between driving in urban environments and the open roads commonly found outside the major cities. We explore the changing conditions and unexpected hazards like farm animals that often take drivers by surprise.
Module 13: Close quarter manouveringThis module is designed to educate drivers to be more aware of the hazards found in places like carparks. We look to raise awareness of techniques such as reverse parking and pre- drive walk arounds.
