Impressive in their size, power and mobility, excavators are used for a wide range of tasks, such as earth moving, demolition, mining, foundation digging and handling.
Pedestrians often need to be in the vicinity to sort waste or guide the driver. On an open site, coactivity is difficult to manage given the local environment, despite the organizational measures in place. Excavators are particularly dangerous for anyone who enters their field of action because they have lots of blind spots at the rear and side, obstructing the driver’s view. There is also a risk of collision with a pedestrian when the excavator is not moving because the operator can rotate it 360 degrees at any time.
The solution? Blaxtair, which warns the driver if there is a person at risk near the excavator so as to prevent a collision. The driver can check the pedestrian’s location via the display in the cab.
