#3 Remove Obstacles
This is certainly a tougher one to implement. Removing obstacles in the path where forklifts drive or frequent is key. However, even if you do a check within the facility, two minutes after you walk away, and obstacle could have fallen or have been placed in an area by a worker.
This is where a pedestrian detection system comes in to help. The SIERA.AI S3 forklift safety system identifies and notifies the forklift driver if a pedestrian is within the path or if it’s an object. Or the ultimate, which is a pedestrian bending behind the obstacle. Our system performs partial human detection and notifies the driver that a human is behind the obstacle. This helps keep the areas safe even in areas that are not well lit.
