What is Human Body Detection in Safety?
Let’s first make sure that we are on the same page with what human body detection in safety is all about. Depending on the originator of the forklift safety system, technologies perform human body detection in safety differently. For the discussion of this topic, we’ll be discussing it from the AI or Artificial Intelligence with machine learning perspective.
When SIERA.AI’s S3 Pedestrian Detection System scans for the human body, the sensor reads to a pre-defined distance set by you the manager. As the information comes into the main ‘brain’ of the forklift safety system, it has already learned what is a human and what is an object. If the system intelligence says it’s a human, it will provide the warning to the forklift driver that a human is within a warning or danger distance.
