Vehicle Monitoring System helps prevent backing accidents.

Vehicle Monitoring System helps prevent backing accidents.

Mobile Awareness, LLC    Solon, OH 44139-2660
Mar 19, 2014 Available as hardware add-on for MobileTRAQ™ Vue, SenseStat® Obstacle Detection Backing Sensor System displays 4 zones behind vehicle to help fleets and drivers prevent backing accidents. System automatically detects when vehicle is in reverse and changes display from monitoring TireStat® tire sensors to displaying SenseStat backing sensors, which are accurate to within 1 in. MobileTRAQ Vue monitor displays all zones in real-time, indicating specific area closest to object.

Obstacle Detection System prevents trailer backing accidents.

Obstacle Detection System prevents trailer backing accidents.

Mobile Awareness, LLC    Solon, OH 44139-2660
Oct 25, 2013 Made for drop and hook situations, SenseStat Wireless® Obstacle Detection Sensor System helps eliminate vehicle backing accidents on trailers pulled by different types of tractors. System automatically pairs switched trailer to monitor in tractor and provides backing safety information to drivers via audible alarm and visual display. When outfitted with system, vehicle becomes capable of providing driver with distance measurements accurate to within 1 in. of closest object to trailer bumper.

Robotic Collision Sensor suits small payloads.

ATI Industrial Automation    Apex, NC 27639
Sep 12, 2013 Designed to absorb crash and reset itself, Model SR-48 virtually eliminates tool damage, downtime, and need for human intervention. In operation, sensor is adjusted to support typical loads experienced by robot arm in all directions: angular, compression, and torsional. Following crash, sensor uses precise locating components to reset within 0.001 in. of original position. Three-wire PNP proximity switch, set to actuate within 0.020 in. of axial motion, ensures reliable switch performance.

Infrared Warning System helps prevent forklift accidents.

Toyota Material Handling U.S.A., Inc.    Irvine, CA 92623-7419
Oct 30, 2012 Designed to minimize risk of traffic-related accidents in warehouses, SpotMe® utilizes infrared direction sensitive sensors to detect approaching traffic. System can be used at junctions to alert forklift drivers and pedestrians of what is approaching around corners. In addition to contributing to overall smooth traffic flow, SpotMe minimizes panic braking to preserve forklifts. Unit can be connected to standalone battery or plugged into mains.

Forklift Collision Awareness System minimizes nuisance alarms.

Forklift Collision Awareness System minimizes nuisance alarms.

Flow-Rite Controls    Byron Center, MI 49315
Feb 13, 2012 Monitoring definable detection area with 4 adjustable IR and/or ultrasound sensors, CROSSING GUARD requires detection of 2 separate motions to trigger alarm. System also can detect presence of motionless individuals and sounds an audible alarm coupled with high-intensity LED light. Powered by solar panel that trickle-charges rechargeable DC battery from ambient warehouse light, CROSSING GUARD uses microprocessor to collect and save sensor activities, aiding investigation of occurrences.

Driver Assistance System helps ensure safe lane changing.

Robert Bosch GmbH    Waiblingen D-71332  Germany
Nov 17, 2010 Using ultrasonic sensors, Side View Assist blind-spot assistant is capable of registering objects 3 m to side and diagonally to rear of vehicle. If sensors detect vehicle, signal is checked for plausibility by system's electronics to prevent false alarms. System then warns driver optically, and if driver fails to react, it will provide acoustic warning. Working at speeds of 10-140 kph, Side View Assist aids drivers in complex traffic situations when relative speeds are low.

Collision Sensors prevent damage to parts and tooling.

SAS Automation, Ltd.    Xenia, OH 45385
Jan 06, 2010 Available in 4 configurations, Collision Sensors send signal to stop robot when they detect obstacle, preventing damage to end effectors/end-of-arm-tooling, parts, and machinery. Pneumatic High-Angle Collision Sensor is suitable for high-speed robots, while Pneumatic Collision Sensor offers adjustable resistance. Spring-loaded version provides crash protection when compressed air is not available, and Pneumatic Stainless Steel Sensor is suited for demanding environments.

Collision Detector alerts drivers to dangerous conditions.

Radar Safety Technologies, LLC    Troy, MI 48084-2468
Apr 01, 2008 Using radar technology based on Safe Braking Distance, FrontAlert(TM) Collision Alert System (CAS) detects hazards in vehicle's path and alerts driver of potential collision via 3.5 in. LCD interface. Green light indicates system is active, and yellow light indicates detected object (no action needed). Red light and alert tone tell driver to take caution, decelerate, brake, or take safe evasive action to avoid collision. Alerts stop once corrective action has been taken.

Collision Safety System includes active braking.

Meritor WABCO    Troy, MI 48084
Feb 08, 2008 Designed for commercial vehicles, OnGuard(TM) consists of forward-looking, radar-based adaptive cruise control system that can detect multiple moving and fixed objects at distances up to 500 ft. System coordinates responses from engine, transmission, and anti-lock braking systems through communications across SAE J1939 data network. Active braking automatically uses vehicle foundation brakes to alert driver and decelerate vehicle when pre-set vehicle following distance is compromised.

Anti-Collision Sensors suit medical imaging machines.

FOGALE nanotech, Inc.    Los Angeles, CA 90045
Nov 26, 2007 Based on capacitive technologies, Body Angel system features adaptable sensor shapes, transparency to X-rays, and communicates with external CPU. Sensors provide anti-collision safety function while simultaneously performing 3D contouring of patient. Body Angel Ring performs front detection, Body Angel Side performs side detection, and Body Angel Antenna is X-ray-transparent sensor.

Optical Sensor prevents traffic crashes in urban areas.

Continental    Allentown, PA 18106
May 25, 2007 By scanning up to 10 m in front of vehicle, closing velocity (CV) sensor helps drivers completely avoid or reduce severity of collisions when traveling at speeds under 25 mph. If calculated distance determines imminent collision, system responds by putting brakes on alert mode to ensure sufficient pressure for stopping. System also initiates automatic braking up to 0.5 g if driver takes foot off accelerator, regulates/optimizes braking power, and tightens seat belts.

Collision Sensor suits wide variety of industrial robots.

ATI Industrial Automation    Apex, NC 27639
Jan 03, 2007 Suited for applications using 3-5 kg capacity robots, Model SR-61 helps prevent damage to robotic end-effectors resulting from robot crashes. In operation, sensor is adjusted to support typical loads experienced by robot arm in all directions including angular, compression, and torsional. Sensor absorbs crash and resets itself within 0.001 in. of original position. Three-wire PNP proximity switch set to actuate within 0.020 in. of axial motion ensures reliable operation.

M/A-COM, Inc.    Lowell, MA 01853
Nov 07, 2006 Resistant to inclement weather and harsh environmental conditions, 24 GHz ultra wide band (UWB) radar sensors provide object detection and tracking. Parking assistance can be provided by rear-mounted sensors with 1.8 m range that can detect small objects in front of large objects and measure direction of arrival. Sensors with ability to scan out up to 30 m provide warning of imminent collision so airbags can be armed and seat restraints pre-tensioned.

Crash Detector protects robots from collision damage.
