A collision with a forklift can happen in the blink of an eye when you’re walking around a busy warehouse or production environment. Even the most experienced and well-trained operator can find it almost impossible to react in time to avoid hitting you when you step out in front their vehicle from behind a loaded pallet or you are too engrossed in a conversation with a colleague to notice that they’re reversing from behind you.
With its front and rear people detection algorithm, the VIA Mobile360 Forklift Safety System harnesses advanced camera AI to boost operator awareness by delivering a audio or visual alert whenever it senses someone coming too close to their vehicle. The additional time the system gives the operator to take evasive action can make all the difference between a near-miss and a serious injury or even fatality.
Check out this new video to learn how the people detection feature of the VIA Mobile360 Forklift Safety System keeps warehouse and industrial facilities safer and more productive by preventing forklift pedestrian accidents and enhancing operator awareness of their surroundings.
The VIA Mobile360 Forklift Safety System can be installed on combustion engine and electric forklifts, and has been deployed across a wide variety of manufacturing, logistics, and materials handling operations for industries as diverse as food and beverages and petrochemicals
