Vancouver's Wenco International Mining Systems
has purchases of all assets and intellectual property of SmartCap Technologies Pty
, engineers of the world’s leading fatigue monitoring wearable.
Based in Brisbane, Australia, SmartCap assesses real-time fatigue levels and monitors for oncoming microsleeps that create safety hazards. The SmartCap device has over 5,000 users globally in mining, trucking, and other industries.
“This purchase is an important step for the continued growth of the SmartCap fatigue technology,” says SmartCap CEO Tim Ekert. “We have made significant progress these past eight years and we are proud of every safety incident our technology has prevented.
“We believe joining Wenco will enable us to grow even further and increase the safety of even more industrial operations.”
This acquisition adds a strategic, fatigue monitoring capability to Wenco’s safety solution portfolio. Safety is of paramount importance at mines and other industrial sites, where operators must perform long hours of repetitive work while paying close attention to their surrounding environment. SmartCap greatly enhances the ability of operators and other workers in proximity to the equipment to remain safe.
