Seeing Machines Limited (LON:SEE) shares were higher on Friday as the group said it is preparing to trial its eye-tracking technology in a helicopter flight simulator in partnership with Toll Helicopters, an arm of Australian logistics group Toll.

The company, which develops eye tracking and operator monitoring technology, said the trial would be based on its Crew Training System (CTS) and incorporated into Toll’s AW-139 Full Flight Simulator at the ACE training centre in Sydney.

The CTS enables flight instructors to observe the movement of the pilot’s eyes in real-time during a simulation and track what they are looking at. The data is then used to provide insight into situational awareness and overall performance.

Seeing Machines said the trail would build on smaller ones conducted with Toll over the last two years, which it said had produced “tangible benefits” for pilots, aircrewmen, and instructors.

Patrick Nolan, general manager of aviation at Seeing Machines, said the company had “every confidence” the technology would be “instrumental in maintaining Toll's high standards of safety and be key to enhancing pilot training efficiencies”.

In afternoon trading, Seeing machines shares were 1% higher at 5.05p.
