The winners of Australia’s peak international design awards were announced on Friday, 8 September, at the 2023 Australian Good Design Awards in front of more than 1,000 guests from the design community.
GroundProbe’s entry – BlastVision® – received a prestigious Good Design Award Winner Accolade in the Engineering Design category in recognition of outstanding design and innovation. It makes the fourth GroundProbe product that has been acknowledged as a Good Design Award Winner.
GroundProbe’s BlastVision® utilises drone-captured blast footage and data visualisation to provide actionable insights to on-site personnel on mine sites. The insights are used to make informed decisions, ultimately driving productivity, improving safety and helping control the impact of blasting on the surrounding environment.
“GroundProbe pride themselves on being at the forefront of design and innovation,” said GroundProbe’s VP -Technology, Fernanda Carrea.
“Our continual acknowledgement by the Good Design Awards demonstrates the ongoing commitment to innovation and excellence by our in-house design team.
“The success of GroundProbe’s business and its continual year-on year growth is built on a culture of innovation that permeates every level of the company.”
The Good Design Awards are the highest honour for design and innovation in the country and reward diverse projects across 11 design disciplines. The 2023 Good Design Awards attracted high-quality design projects from Australia and around the world. These innovative projects were evaluated by more than 70 Australian and international jurors, including designers, engineers, architects and thought leaders, according to a strict set of design evaluation criteria which includes good design, design innovation and design impact.
“To be recognised with an Australian Good Design Award tells the world this project not only represents design excellence, but it also surpasses the criteria for design innovation and design impact. The Good Design Award is an independent endorsement of professional design quality,” said Dr. Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia and Chair of the Australian Good Design Awards.
Projects recognised with an Australian Good Design Award demonstrate excellence in professional design and highlight the impact a design-led approach has on business success and social and environmental outcomes.
“The Good Design Awards recognise and celebrate the transformative power of design to find innovative, customer-centric solutions to local and global challenges.” Dr. Gien concluded.
