- Computer-vision technology company Seeing Machines welcomed the approval by the European Union of new road safety rules.

The European parliament's Internal Market Committee announced that 'driver drowsiness and attention warning' and 'advanced driver distraction warning' systems would become mandatory in all vehicles.

'The leadership shown by Europe in this move to improve transport safety using technology is most welcome, as governments all over the world grapple with serious injuries and fatalities caused by road accidents,' chief executive Ken Kroeger said.

'"Seeing Machines is focused on safety outcomes and we have spent the past 20 years honing our technology for this very purpose.'
