AutoSense's IoT story


Customer problem

A desire to gain greater data insights from Guardian by Seeing Machines, which AutoSense distributes to its customers.


Moved to a data reporting platform called Cisco Control Centre.


Better understanding of product data, improved customer service, increased revenue and seamless Trans-Tasman connectivity.

 Using IoT to help Kiwi companies keep their drivers safe.


AutoSense is a medium-sized NZ business with over 200 customers nationwide. Their company mission is to use technology to streamline driver safety training.

AutoSense distributes Guardian by Seeing Machines. This technology uses sophisticated eye and face tracking algorithms to detect driver fatigue and distraction, providing immediate intervention when a driver is at risk.

AutoSense's business challenge was that they wanted to gain more in depth insights from the data Guardian provided - which wasn't available on the platform they were using. Their operational costs were rising and their margins were falling. So they partnered with Spark to find a solution using IoT.

Customer solution

The local Spark Business Hub built a relationship with AutoSense to get a better understanding of the company and its business problems. Spark then delivered an end-to-end IoT solution that included a market-leading connectivity platform, Cisco Jasper, and Spark's 4G network.


Using these tools, AutoSense is now getting more value from Guardian data. They improved their product knowledge, increased their revenue but more importantly are keeping drivers safer when driving. Here are some of the key outcomes:

  • Greater visibility and understanding of data from Guardian by Seeing Machines
  • Streamlined data reporting for customers
  • Shortened turnaround times and reduced administrative costs
  • Gained the ability to manage and on-sell data as a monthly subscription
“Our tech and support teams were facing multiple challenges and lacked true visibility from the technology, impacting productivity and costs. With Spark’s help we have completely revolutionised that part of our business." Charles Dawson - CEO, AutoSense
