Australia's Seeing Machines moves into ASIC IP
Seeing Machines Ltd. (Canberra, Australia), an AI computer vision company, has agreed to license its Occula neural processing unit to a "global" semiconductor company.

Seeing Machines did not reveal the name of the chip company but said it had signed a memorandum of understanding to license Occula in ASIC form.

Occula is a custom core designed to be integrated into ARM-based SoCs to accelerate Seeing Machines' software in support of low-power human face, eye and body tracking.

Paul McGlone, CEO at Seeing Machines, commented: "Licensing our unique IP in this way allows us to distribute our technology through major auto and technology suppliers onto complementary platforms. I'm delighted to see our Embedded Product Strategy coming to life, as we partner with large automotive semiconductor companies, creating new channels to market and addressing the growing integration challenges for driver monitoring technology faced by our OEM and Tier 1 customers."

Seeing Machines was founded in 2000 and has developed software, and now hardware, to support vision-based monitoring of people. It is listed on the London Stock Exchange Alternative Investment Market (AIM).
