AI Sensors are Fast
The benefit of the camera or sensor with AI technology is this: it allows the sensor to do its job of scanning fast. Ours scans every 60ms. That’s fast, much faster than the human eye. As the operator is moving the forklift, the AI sensor just does the one job of scanning fast. The information coming into the sensor is analyzed by the AI technology to determine if the human or object is within the safe distance from the forklift. If the answer (that we taught it) is no, then it determines if it is a human or an object.
Human can come in various shapes and forms, but has been taught what to know about a human. Same goes true for an object. The object can be a box, a racking system, wall or a broom. Doesn’t matter, it knows. Based on its quick analysis, it then notifies the operator that a person or object is within the dangerous zone of the forklift. It will choose if it should flash a picture of a human or a picture of a box that represents an object. Once it decides, it will also signal for the audio alarm to sound as well. The combination of the two will work in unison for the operator to take action.
If the operator chooses to ignore the audio and visual warnings, the telemetry Dashboard will keep track of such actions as this can / will turn into a forklift collision.
