Ensuring the safety of people walking on a construction site, in a quarry, a mine or a tunnel is essential. They often work in environments that are difficult due to noise, dust, poor lighting, weather conditions or the small size of the site.
Vehicles and mobile machinery regularly operating in close proximity to pedestrians present a real danger. Drivers lack visibility due to the vehicle’s bulk and blind spots, especially when maneuvering in reverse. In this context, employees often wear hearing protection and do not hear machines approaching, which further increases the risk of collision.
By being able to distinguish between a person and other types of obstacles (such as the gallery wall), the Blaxtair reports any human presence in the path of machinery and thereby prevents false alarms from being raised. Workers operating on foot therefore remain safe. The driver can concentrate on their job, thereby increasing their productivity.
