Seeing Machines, a British-based technology company that provides monitoring and intervention sensing technologies has signed a marketing and licence agreement with Caterpillar.
Under the deal, Caterpillar Safety Solutions will provide 24/7 monitoring and analytical services to customers worldwide using Seeing Machines’ DSSTM products.
Seeing Machines and Caterpillar have formally entered the next phase of a four-phase global alliance agreement, with key global Cat dealers now marketing, selling and supporting Seeing Machines’ DSS Mining product and support services.
Under license, Caterpillar data analysts will use DSSi to remotely monitor DSS equipped fleets around the clock in real time, analyse operator and system performance to help prevent incidents, identify risk trends and provide line of sight to a host of factors that influence not only safety, but also operational efficiency and vehicle performance and health.
