Linde Safety Guard is a pedestrian proximity warning and collision avoidance safety assist system. It warns operators of potential collisions if they continue their driving route.
Customers can create speed zones that offer accuracy of up to 10mm and ultrawide-band transmission technology means the signal is able to penetrate walls, racking and doors, etc. Additionally, the speed zones are defined by the customer, for example the customer can determine the size of the speed zone and also the truck speed when the truck enters the speed zone.
The device scans an area for potential hazards and obstacles and is able to assess the height and distance from the truck.
It then warns the operator and nearby pedestrians through a loud noise and flashing light on the truck dashboard as well as additional speaker units on walls or racking. This helps the operator to avert their course and avoid an accident.
Additionally, pedestrians and warehouse workers can wear an electronic tag fitted to their clothing that sends a signal to the Safety Guard system on a truck. This helps to identify possible collisions with pedestrians even when they are around corners or are not immediately visible to the operator.
Safety Guard feature is available as a retro-fitted add-on for any Linde truck.
