The fatigue monitoring and driverless software group pulled in £35mln through a placing at 5p, compared an original £30mln target.
Ken Kroeger, chairman, and Mike McAuliffe, chief executive, invested £20,000 and £50,000 respectively, while major shareholder VS International will invest £3.5mln separately to maintain its stake at 11.2%.
An open offer will follow that can raise up to a further £2.4mln.
Broker finncap, which helped in the bookbuild, said the recent contract award from a German car maker underlined that Seeing Machines has developed a credible driver monitoring system that can win a sizeable chunk of the market.
"Equity investors are now beginning to appreciate the scale of the opportunity and the true value of this business."
Now that the funding gap has been cleared a path for Seeing Machines to achieve its remarkable potential is now open, added the broker, which has a target price of 12p.
Shares rose 4% to 5.88p.
