#2: Proximity Forklift Sensors: Turning Corners
Orders need to be fulfilled; product needs to be put away. The manager asks, “Why isn’t it done yet?” The forklift operator tries to pick up the pace. The driver speeds down the aisles and turns the corners at a higher rate of speed.
Turning corners too tight can quickly lead to a forklift accident. The forklift can tip over, crash into the racking system, or even drop product onto a nearby pedestrian.
We all need a little help when pressure hits. Proximity monitoring on a forklift is a smart device that warns the operator when the forklift is in close proximity to a racking system, pedestrian, other equipment, and product to name a few. The proximity sensor constantly scans in 4 directions. If it detects a problem, the driver gets a visual and audio alert.
