Loaders are large, powerful machines that are a necessity for many industries and applications, such as clearing, surface leveling, backfilling and material handling.
It is rarely possible to completely separate machinery from pedestrians, and there are often areas of crossover or coactivity. Loaders have large blind spots, especially at the rear, reducing the driver’s field of vision and preventing the driver from seeing that a pedestrian may be in the way. Focused on the task at hand, the driver may not pay attention to everything going on around them for a few seconds, which can mean the worst for a nearby pedestrian.
The solution? Blaxtair, which warns the driver if there is a person at risk near the loader so as to prevent a collision.
