In order to provide customers with powerful systems that allow operators from several industrial sectors to improve workplace safety and reporting, as a global leader in industrial communication and safety products Strata Products Worldwide LLC has attained the assets and intellectual property rights to Bright Path AI (BPAI) and its innovative artificial intelligence (AI) cameras advanced by Boral Limited and Firetail Pty Ltd.
At the core of the BPAI system are two camera technologies: a fixed vision camera system that monitors people on foot in restricted zones, and a mobile digital vision sensor (currently in development) which is mounted on equipment to alert operators to pending collisions with personnel or other objects. The technology is designed to provide an extra set of eyes to avoid mistakes while at the same time allowing organizations to monitor, benchmark, and report overall performance to achieve data-driven improvements.
According to Mike Berube, President, and CEO of Strata Worldwide: “BPAI was initially developed for the construction industry in Australia but when we reviewed it, we realized that this was easily adaptable to any industrial setting. We’re excited to announce this because we see the potential for these technologies to improve safety and operational efficiency in many industrial workplaces across the globe. These state-of-the-art technologies are ideal additions to our product portfolio.”
Enabling the technology to be extensively field tested in a range of conditions, is one of the advantages of the size of Boral’s portfolio as the largest integrated construction materials company in Australia.
“Our innovative team and tech partners have worked hard to make this technology a reality as part of our broader commitment to zero harm. We’re proud of what we’ve developed and will remain a customer of BPAI. We believe Strata is best placed to take this innovative technology into its next phase and beyond,” said Martin Guenzl, BPAI Manager at Boral.
Berube notes: “Strata Worldwide will continue supporting and developing the technology for the construction industry. We intend to offer existing BPAI customers the same level of service and support enjoyed by our current valued customers. With the ongoing input of our partners, our vision is to develop the technology and expand it globally, diversifying into our primary industries of mining, tunneling, and maritime.”
