To mark National Forklift Safety Day in China, we joined the industry’s leading players from throughout the country at an event in the city of Dongguan, where we demonstrated our new VIA Mobile360 Forklift Safety System.
With its smart people detection feature, the system prevents accidents and injuries in busy warehouse and industrial environments. Whenever its front and rear cameras detect someone stepping within 4 meters of the vehicle, the system issues an audio or voice alert to the operator so that they can take timely evasive action. As an extra safeguard, a critical alert zone can be set for when a person comes even closer to the vehicle just in case the operator does not react quickly enough to the first one. To further enhance operator awareness of what is happening around their vehicle, the system can also deliver live video streams from the cameras direct to its optional 7” in-cabin display together with visual alerts.
To ensure that the operator remains fully attentive while they are behind the wheel, the system also has a driver camera with advanced DMS (Driver Monitoring System) features. The moment that it detects signs of fatigue, smart phone usage, and smoking, the system alerts the operator to take the appropriate action and ensure full compliance with health and safety requirements.
The VIA Mobile360 Forklift Safety System provides a complete out-of-the-box solution for a wide variety of forklifts. In addition to the ruggedized VIA Mobile360 M500 system, it comprises front and rear FOV-190° cameras for people detection, an FOV-68° driver camera for the DMS features, a high-quality speaker, and an optional 7” LCD screen.
The system, cameras, and screen are all designed to meet IP67 water resistance standards. Tough and durable mounting brackets are also included and can be attached to the vehicle using a strong magnet and 3M™ tape or drilled. Installation is a snap with the VIA Mobile360 WorkX smart phone app, which makes it easy for you to calibrate the cameras and complete the system settings.
