Forklift Proximity Detection System
A forklift proximity detection system warns the driver of potential danger around the actual moving forklift. The dangers can be pedestrians, objects or other mobile equipment within the facility. Included in the forklift proximity detection system is a smart device, or a sensor, that monitors around the forklift every 60ms. When an object or pedestrian is in a pre-defined proximity to the forklift, a visual and audio alert sounds and captures the attention of the forklift operator.
Improve Workplace Safety
One of the main benefits is the forklift safety system can be installed on any type of forklift truck. As most manufacturing, warehouse or distribution centers have more than one type of lift truck, it’s imperative to know what each lift truck experiences. What does that mean? You want to be able to capture information so it can give you a deeper insight into the movements and results of each lift truck. Here are some areas that you’ll be able to benefit with a forklift proximity detection system.
Tracking Near Misses
Near misses is a great way to understand the behaviors of the forklift operator. The sensors will capture information and report if the forklift operator is moving faster than the designated speed you had set for a particular area, or general area of the facility. Track if the lift truck is moving too close to another object or piece of equipment. These recorded near misses will help you to know when you need to step in and provide targeted forklift training.
Forklift Impact Monitoring
Impact monitoring is more than tracking near misses. Impact monitoring tracks the actual impacts that the forklift may have with other equipment, facility infrastructure, pedestrian or product. Understanding the forklift impacts in real-time allows you to get to the scene of the impact quickly in order to gain greater insights into the forklift impact. You’ll know when an impact occurs by our notification system. Our system will notify you via text, email or both to you or anyone else you want notified when an impact occurs.
