Safetytech Accelerator picks Senseye as first start-up for Waypoint programme

Computational neuroscience start-up Senseye, a developer of systems to improve fatigue management, has been selected as the first company to join the Waypoint commercial acceleration programme from Safetytech Accelerator.

Safetytech Accelerator is a non-profit founded by Lloyd’s Register to solve safety and risk challenges using technology. Waypoint, run in collaboration with maritime innovation consultancy Thetius, is aimed at making emerging safety and risk technologies commercially viable with a route to scale in the marine market.

Over the next three months, the partnership will see the Safetytech Accelerator team work with Senseye to test commercial systems to improve fatigue management across the industry.

“We have already worked successfully with Safetytech Accelerator to explore the viability of our technology in the industry,” said Simon Woods, President of Senseye.

“We are excited to be taking this next step as we look to realise the potential of our neurotechnology to improve safety and wellbeing across the maritime industry.”

Senseye joins the Waypoint programme after completing proof of concept tests with Pacific International Lines as part of a Safety Accelerator challenge in 2019. The challenge saw Senseye’s technology adapted for use as an operational risk management tool and deployed to a container ship for a three-month pilot.
