This Chat GPT is bloody good stuff in my humble opinion, as it has found information about Collins Aerospace and its use of Seeing Machines eye-tracking technology that I didn’t realise even existed.
Just read this Q&A session with the AI-powered search engine:
Q. Does Collins Aerospace have a pilot support system that uses eye-tracking?
A. Collins Aerospace, a subsidiary of Raytheon Technologies Corporation, offers a range of avionics systems, including pilot support systems. One of their products, the “Pro Line Fusion” avionics system, includes a feature called “Head-up Display (HUD) with Eye-Sensing Technology.”
This technology uses eye-tracking to provide pilots with a more intuitive and efficient way of interacting with the aircraft’s avionics. By tracking the pilot’s eye movements, the system can automatically adjust the information displayed on the HUD to match the pilot’s focus, making it easier for the pilot to keep their attention on the task at hand.
The system also includes a feature called “SmartView Synthetic Vision System,” which uses 3D graphics to provide pilots with a more comprehensive view of their surroundings, helping them to make more informed decisions.
So, in summary, yes, Collins Aerospace offers a pilot support system that uses eye-tracking technology as part of its Pro Line Fusion avionics system.
Q. Which company supplies this eye-tracking to Collins Aerospace?
A. The eye-tracking technology used in the Collins Aerospace Pro Line Fusion avionics system is supplied by Seeing Machines, an Australian-based company that specializes in developing advanced computer vision technologies.
Seeing Machines’ eye-tracking technology is based on machine learning algorithms that analyze eye movements and can accurately track eye gaze points in real-time. This technology is used in a variety of industries, including aviation, mining, automotive, and transportation, to improve safety and performance.
Collins Aerospace has a partnership with Seeing Machines to integrate their eye-tracking technology into the Pro Line Fusion avionics system. Seeing Machines’ technology is a key feature of the Pro Line Fusion system, helping pilots to maintain situational awareness and improve their overall performance.
Share price impact
This is potentially huge news for Seeing Machines if confirmed by either company, as it could materially impact its share price.
