It’s offical now, Augmented-Intelligence was awarded one of the ACT Government’s Innovation Grants (ICON) as part of the most recent round. The Grant will be used to further our product trials and build out the FatigueM8 portal.

The ICON Grant, along with matched contributions from Augmented-Intelligence and our partners will see close to $100k invested into our project “Fatigue and cardiovascular monitoring for heavy vehicle drivers using an ECG monitor embedded in the steering wheel.”.

The ICON Grants rounds are always very competitive and we are ever so thankful to the the ACT Government and CBR Innovation for support of our journey. We’ll be putting the collective funds to good use, purchasing the hardware to create an additional five (5) FatigueM8 units. The additional units will allow our current trial plans to be doubled from five (5) to ten (10) vehicles, with potential for up to 20 drivers to participate.

As well as the additional units, we’ll also be creating a FatigueM8 portal, where our drivers will be able to login and review their data in an easy to use manner. Watch this space for further developments.
