- Computer vision technology company Seeing Machines said it welcomed findings from a US regulator that driver monitoring technology was key to enhanced safety on roads.

The National Transportation Safety Board had released on Tuesday initial findings from an investigation into a fatal collision between an Uber automated test vehicle and a pedestrian in March.

The accident sparked a broader review of the need for safety risk management for testing automated vehicles on public roads.

'Seeing Machines is particularly pleased with the second recommendation released by NTSB which refers to the requirement for "adequate monitoring of vehicle operator engagement, if applicable",' the company said.
