Heavy Equipment Collision Prevention System


The “Heavy Equipment Collision Prevention System”  plays a crucial role in preventing major accidents to maintain a safe and efficient work environment. This system is utilized in construction sites, mining sites, factories, and other industrial settings, primarily designed to prevent collisions between large equipment or vehicles and ensure worker safety.
The heavy equipment collision prevention system can be composed of various technologies and devices. For instance, there are systems that utilize GPS technology to track and monitor the location of equipment, enabling workers to prevent collisions with other equipment or obstacles in advance.
Moreover, systems incorporating sensor and camera technologies are used to monitor the surrounding environment of the equipment in real-time. These systems generate warnings when the equipment approaches other objects or personnel closely. Such systems help prevent collisions and provide warnings to workers, thus maintaining a safe working environment.
The heavy equipment collision prevention system for preventing major accidents plays a crucial role not only in the construction and mining industries but also in various other industrial sectors such as manufacturing and utilities. By effectively implementing this system, potential risks can be reduced, and the safety of workers can be ensured.
Real-time monitoring for accident prevention is the ultimate obligation of companies to provide a safe working environment for their employees. To achieve this, various management solutions and ICT technologies are being explored in industrial settings. Utilizing Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) for precise positioning, how can we prevent major accidents? 
Heavy Equipment Collision Prevention System
While it may be challenging to establish a comprehensive monitoring system in small-scale workplaces, preventing major accidents that frequently occur in industrial settings requires innovative solutions. One proposed solution is an approach detection alarm system based on Ultra-Wideband (UWB) precise positioning technology.
Worker Detection and Alarm 
Detecting workers approaching heavy equipment triggers alarms and warnings. Alarms can be in the form of flashing lights, high-output buzzers (auditory), or laser beam alarms (visual). UWB technology precisely measures the distance between heavy equipment and workers, triggering alarms in stages at distances ranging from 10m to 1m, providing the driver with auditory, visual, and vibration alerts to enable quick braking of the forklift. 
Safe Zone Indication for Accident Prevention 
High-output LED safety beams mark hazardous areas, providing alerts to prevent access.
Multi-Channel Monitoring of Blind Spots
High-resolution cameras with AI image recognition capabilities are installed to minimize blind spots outside the operator’s line of sight. When a person is detected, immediate alarms are issued to the operator. 
Geoplan’s heavy equipment collision prevention system not only provides the aforementioned functions but also advances collision prevention systems through UWB communication. By employing a hybrid positioning algorithm that integrates UWB and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), utilizing Time-of-Flight (ToF) positioning for calculating the distance between locators attached to heavy equipment and worker tags, the system reduces signal collision losses.
