Having worked in heavy-duty operations at mining sites for over 15 years, we noticed the vulnerability and the reliance of optical vision. Advances in autonomous and remote control technology further increased the need for reliable sensors. However, self-cleaning cameras on the market relied on external hardware such as nozzles, hoses, air tanks, and more which would either be vulnerable in harsh conditions and/or require ongoing upkeep. These shortcomings lead to costly downtime, limited placement of cameras, and safety issues for personnel.
That's why we created a focused team of engineers to develop a self-sufficient, self-cleaning family of cameras and sensors with a patented cleaning method which requires no vulnerable external hardware, eliminates downtime due to upkeep, and increases safety for personnel.
