Harnesses unique vSense sensor fusion technology combining camera detection with mmWave radar sensors to provide vehicle operators with accurate real-time visual and audio alerts of potential safety threats
Minimizes risk of accidents and equipment damage in the world’s most hazardous mines, quarries, and construction sites, independent of lighting and weather conditions
Supports all the most common types of wheel loaders, haulers, telehandlers, and other large off-road vehicles, as well as featuring a broad range of customization options
Taipei, Taiwan, March 13, 2023 – VIA Technologies, Inc. today announced that it will be showcasing its VIA Mobile360 Heavy Equipment Safety System at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023, the largest construction show in North America, which takes place from 14 – 18 March 2023. The VIA booth is located at #10555 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The VIA Mobile360 Heavy Equipment Safety System combines vivid 360° SVS (Surround View System) video with vSenseTM mmWave radar smart sensor fusion technology to provide operators of construction, excavation, and mining vehicles with pinpoint real-time alerts of approaching vehicles, machinery, and people in all weather, lighting, and working conditions.
Featuring a robust and flexible design, including a ruggedized IP67-rated waterproof enclosure and support for up to eight IP69K -rated cameras and eight 77GHz mmWave radar sensors, can be installed on all major classes of heavy vehicles ranging from haulers, wheel loaders, and bulldozers to concrete mixer trucks, lubrication trucks, and high-capacity forklifts.
“With its smart detection and sensor fusion technologies, the VIA Mobile360 Heavy Equipment Safety System prevents accidents on construction, quarrying, and mining sites by removing blind spots around large vehicles and delivering accurate and timely alerts whenever it detects a potential safety threat,” said Richard Brown, VP International Marketing, VIA Technologies, Inc. “Innovative features including configurable Warning and Critical detection zones, Adaptive Sensing, and POTA (Precision-Over-The-Air) software updates mean that the functionality of the system can be optimized to meet specific deployment requirements and meet evolving needs.”
VIA Mobile360 Heavy Equipment Safety System
The VIA Mobile360 Heavy Equipment Safety System is a complete solution that includes an IP67-rated ruggedized waterproof enclosure, up to eight IP69K-rated FOV-190° 720p automotive-grade cameras, up to eight IP69K-rated FOV-150° 77GHz mmWave radar sensors, an 8″ industrial display (1280×720), a high-quality speaker, and a 4G LTE Module Kit for North America. An extensive range of mountings and cables is also available. Highlights include:
Scalable Design: The VIA Mobile360 Heavy Equipment Safety System can be seamlessly deployed in a wide range of vehicles across your fleet – from loaders, haulers, and excavators to lube trucks, waste management trucks, and high-capacity forklifts. To meet your constantly evolving requirements, upgrades of vSenseTM, vCareTM, and vSafeTM applications and services can be delivered POTA to each vehicle that enhance system functionality and enable you to future-proof your investment.
Pinpoint People and Obstacle Detection: The system features two configurable Warning and Critical detection zones to notify operators of potential hazards around the left, right and rear sides of the vehicle. Whenever it detects an object or a person in either zone, it displays a color-coded indicator on the operator’s in-cabin screen. If it deems the object or person as a threat due to their trajectory, a blue box will flash around the color-coded indicator and the corresponding audio alert will also be played to alert the operator of the impending danger.
Supported Vehicles: The system can be installed on a wide variety of vehicles, including the CAT 972M, CAT 980M, CAT 988K, CAT 775F, and John Deere 724. From haulers and bulldozers to telehandlers and water trucks, the VIA Mobile360 Heavy Equipment Safety System comes with a comprehensive range of customization services to meet specific deployment requirements, accommodating for everybody’s needs.
