The package is able to identify personnel in proximity to a working machine, warning an operator and preventing collisions. Special badges that site personnel wear can be detected by the system, helping ensure their safety on a busy working construction site. The system provides degrees of alert to the machine operator, depending on the proximity of the piece of equipment to the obstruction.
Meanwhile, the system can help reduce risks of an excavator bucket striking buried utilities or overhead cables. A spokesperson for the firm said, “We can keep adding functions to it.” The package will also track any site incidents and the spokesperson added, “It’ll record all events: near misses and hits and things like that.”
