About Safe AI

The global construction and mining industries have faced unprecedented challenges over the past year with COVID-19 shutdowns impacting worksites, and the restriction of movement creating labour shortages in many countries. SafeAI, head-quartered in Silicon Valley, is working on a solution which could improve productivity, solve labour shortages and save millions in costs. The company has established a base in Perth and is expanding its operations in a further investment in the Australian resources industry under the leadership of Brenton Welford.

SafeAI retrofits heavy equipment for autonomous applications in the mining and construction industries with self-driving technology. SafeAI autonomous technology enables equipment owners to transform existing machines into self-operating robotic assets, whether it’s a skid steer, light vehicle or a 220-tonne haul truck. Moreover, an open and interoperable architecture allows an operator to own its own data, integrate that data with other systems, map its entire digital ecosystem and to be easily upgraded as technology improves.
