Sophisticated camera system
Paris-based Arcure has developed the sophisticated Blaxtair safety camera system for use with off-highway equipment to reduce risks for site personnel. This camera helps detect obstacles, locate them precisely and identify them. Highly sophisticated, the Blaxtair unit can distinguish pedestrians from other objects in real time. When a pedestrian is detected in the danger zone, Blaxtair emits a sonic alarm to the driver that increases with the imminence of the danger. A control screen in the cabin allows the driver an instant assessment of the situation. The Blaxtair unit features advanced video recognition algorithms and combines several patented image processing technologies so as to provide reliable detection under difficult conditions. The main detector is a stereoscopic camera specially developed by Arcure for use in tough environments. Blaxtair is suitable for all types of machines and can be quickly mounted. Effective by day and by night (with working lights), it can stand up to tough environments. There are three basic variants: standard for use in most construction sites, industrial for use in congested operations and reinforced for underground applications.
