forklift Collision Avoidance and proximity warning System
Location Awareness for
More than 14% of all workplace accidents are caused by the loss of control of equipment causing collisions and injuries, making it the second most observed accident type and the cause of many fatalities.
The frequency of the incidents, combined with the high fatality rate has made collisions one of the most important workplace safety issues to address, especially for facilities such as factories, warehouses, shipyards, construction sites and mining plants. Forklift collision avoidance systems and proximity warnings can be crucial to prevent accidents.
Safe Steps Forklift Collision Avoidance and Proximity Warning module prevents vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian collisions by providing location awareness to workers and mobile equipment such as forklifts and AGVs.
With wearable devices for pedestrians and UWB tags installed on vehicles, pedestrians are warned when they are near a vehicle and the vehicle is automatically slowed down or stopped without driver intervention with the anti-collision system.
In loading areas where there is a frequent influx of trucks, forklifts and other vehicles, an area control device can be installed to recognize risky proximity between pedestrians and vehicles and activate warnings.
With location awareness, employees are more capable of protecting themselves and others from collisions.
Safe Steps automates vehicle safety to minimize the risk of human error.
