Acusensus wins Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) Australia Awards
Australia’s peak body for advanced transport technology – Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) has awarded Acusensus its highest accolade – the ‘Excellence in Research and Development’ award. ITS Australia, an independent not-for-profit organisation, utilises this award to showcase the best transport technology development and deployment in the country.
The Excellence in Research and Development Award – presented at an awards ceremony in Sydney on Thursday, February 16, 2023 – recognises organisations for their ground-breaking transport technology, research, development or innovation.
Acusensus founder and Managing Director Alexander Jannink said he was honoured that his company was acknowledged for its contribution to reducing road trauma and fatalities.
“It’s deeply gratifying for our technology to be recognised by the industry for its ability to efficiently change behaviours of road drivers on a larger scale,
“Our goal is to make the roads as safe as possible. Despite improved vehicle designs and road safety improvements, road fatalities have actually been increasing since 2013, largely attributed to distracted driving. Our technology is designed to prevent hundreds of thousands of deaths and road injuries worldwide,” Jannink said.
Acusensus ‘Heads-Up’ technology – a world-first safety solution first launched in 2018 – automatically detects illegal phone use via fixed or roadside smart cameras that autonomously capture high-resolution photographic evidence of driver behaviour. The AI-based system can also simultaneously detect speed, seatbelt compliance, incorrect lane use and unregistered vehicles.
The team at Acusensus is grateful for the industry’s recognition through the ITS award and looks forward to more exciting opportunities ahead.
The ITS ‘Excellence in Research and Development’ award is sponsored by iMOVE.
