Using AI Technologies
With the adoption of AI technologies, machine learning and vision technologies, safety was taken to new heights. Many are nervous with this type of technologies, but it’s an affective solution for forklift safety for the operators and for the pedestrians. How?
The AI technologies have been learning for years how to identify and know the difference between a pedestrian and an object. The forklift safety system today (by SIERA.AI) has the ability to scan the environment and scan to the distance you, the customer sets. If you want 5 feet, 25 feet whatever is best for your facility, it will identify anything or anybody that comes within that distance.
When someone or something comes within that predefined distance, it will notify the operator with both visual and audio alerts. If what is being alerted is a person, a human symbol will be shown to the driver along with a beeping alert. If it is an object within the path, a symbol of a box along with the audio alert is provided to the lift truck operator. The combination of the two works to ensure an action is taken by the driver.
