Seen develops pedestrian detection technology to protect workers at risk of being struck by mobile plant or thrown objects — from bulldozers to bullets.

Seen specialises in designing optical sensors that detect the reflective strip on high visibility safety vests and apparel.

Every day, people are killed or injured on worksites and other potentially dangerous occupational situations. Regulators have been sharpening their teeth and industries are waking up to the need for smarter, safer workplaces. Accordingly, safety has become a top priority for all employers.

High-vis clothing makes ground personnel more visible, but it can’t prevent deaths and injuries when a machine operator can’t see the worker. Seen’s IRIS sensors detect when someone is in the machine’s blind-spot, and alerts the driver.

Seen’s optical sensors are used to detect the high-visibility safety-vests worn by ground-personnel in the following sectors:

  • Construction
  • Container ports
  • Material handling and logistics
  • Agriculture and forestry


Seen developed the world’s first Hunter Detection System to prevent mistaken-for-game hunting accidents. Visit for more information.

Our mission is to use our unique technology to protect lives. We make the world a safer place.

IRIS sensors can detect standard class-II high visibility safety vests.
