Factories, manufacturing plants and on/off loading zones are dangerous environments to work by their nature.
Forklifts, heavy duty carrying vehicles and humans share the same, sometimes really tight, space during everyday operations.
Accident Prevention System
Proximity aims to eliminate or minimize accidents that involve humans and vehicles in these floors.
Each person carries a location device on themselves which is embedded to their security vest and vehicles are fitted with a special hardware.
Proximity system captures the positions of each person and vehicle iterating this 30 times a second.
In case trajectory of a vehicle intersects with a human, system automatically issues audial and visual alerts of the danger.
In case trajectories still intersect, Proximity system issues a shut down command to vehicle to avoid contact with humans.
Position, speed and direction information is available on a virtual map as well as heat maps.
