DefenceX to provide consultancy and engineering resources for upgraded Sentinel Vision Vision A.I. Human Recognition & Warning System

PRM Engineering, a leading provider of industrial machinery safety systems, has announced that it has partnered with DefenceX, a renowned defence technology company, to upgrade its Sentinel Vision AI enabled Pedestrian Recognition & Warning System. The upgraded system will feature enhanced reliability, increased vigilance and better object collision avoidance than a human spotter.

The Sentinel Vision AI system, which can be retrofitted to any machine, is capable of monitoring hazardous zones for pedestrian detection and object collision avoidance. The system features pre-warning and audible alarms that provide the operator and pedestrian with an opportunity to take action, either by stopping the machine or moving away safely. Additionally, the system has an optional Motion Stop integration that allows machine control if the operator or pedestrian fails to stop or move away safely.

Customers have reported superior detection distance, low light performance, ruggedness and reliability of detection compared to older technologies. Furthermore, the detection zones are fully configurable to any shape by width and distance, and larger machines can utilize more cameras for rear blind spot detection.

“PRM Engineering is excited to partner with DefenceX to upgrade our Sentinel Vision AI enabled Pedestrian Recognition & Warning System,” said a PRM Engineering spokesperson Avril Davis. “The collaboration will ensure that our system continues to offer cutting-edge technology to our customers. We look forward to working with DefenceX to provide our customers with the best possible solutions for their needs.”

DefenceX is equally thrilled about the partnership with PRM Engineering, stating that they are looking forward to providing consultancy and engineering resources for the upgraded system. The new system will undoubtedly improve pedestrian safety in hazardous zones, and the optional Motion Stop integration will further enhance machine control and safety.

DefenceX is ready to Launch AI

Apr 11, 2023 by Ross Newman

DefenceX, a leading technology company specializing in defence and security, has recently joined the Queensland AI Hub accelerator program Launch AI. This move is aimed at exploring new and innovative ways to bring AI to military edge computing. Through the use of technology insertion, the company’s AI-enabled C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance) system can better understand the environment, increase tactical awareness, reduce cognitive burden, and ultimately increase the effectiveness of tactical decision-making.

The use of AI in defence and security is not a new concept, but it is one that has gained increasing importance in recent years. The military has long relied on technology to gain an edge on the battlefield, and AI is no exception. In today’s rapidly changing and complex world, the ability to process large amounts of data in real-time is critical to maintaining the military’s operational advantage. DefenceX’s AI-enabled C4ISR system is designed to do just that.

By leveraging the power of AI, DefenceX’s C4ISR system can process large amounts of data from various sources, including sensors, unmanned systems, and other platforms. The system can then analyze this data in real-time, providing commanders with a more accurate and comprehensive picture of the battlefield. This increased situational awareness enables commanders to make faster, more informed decisions that are based on real-time data.

DefenceX’s C4ISR system is also designed to reduce the cognitive burden on military personnel. By automating many of the tedious and time-consuming tasks associated with data analysis, the system allows military personnel to focus on more critical tasks, such as mission planning and execution. This can lead to increased operational efficiency and a higher level of effectiveness on the battlefield.

Joining the Queensland AI Hub accelerator program Launch AI is an exciting step for DefenceX. The program provides access to a network of industry experts, investors, and mentors, who can help guide the company’s AI development efforts. This collaboration will also provide opportunities for DefenceX to showcase its AI-enabled C4ISR system to potential customers and partners.
