What if the Human is Behind an Object?
With the capability to detect both the human and an object, you want to know what it is going to detect first…the pedestrian behind a box or the box itself. The S3 PDS is unique in that it can detect both and know the difference between a person and an object.
The quick simple answer is the person will be detected first, and notified to the forklift operator as such. Now, the bigger answer that is important to know is this: the S3 PDS can detect there is a person behind, on the side of, on top of an object. Meaning, if only a foot, or hand or head is showing from behind a box or any object, the S3 system will know it. It will know there is a human and will notify the forklift operator that a pedestrian is in close proximity to the forklift.
