Elevate Safety with Pedestrian Proximity Detection

An advanced AI technology to detect and prevent vehicle, product, and pedestrian accidents

The Safety Challenge

You know the importance of safety, and as a valued Powerfleet customer, we’re excited to introduce you to our Pedestrian Proximity Detection system. 

In manufacturing facilities and distribution centers where forklifts and pedestrians intersect, accidents can have staggering consequences.

When a one-second error can mean the difference between a near-miss and a serious injury you need the most advanced, accurate pedestrian safety system working for your team.

Solving Your Safety Challenges Together

Swiftly detect potential hazards and impending danger, all without the need for wearable tags or attire. But that’s not all. When you pair this system with our industrial telematics data, you unlock a treasure trove of insights. These insights help you identify areas for enhancement and offer valuable coaching for drivers, fostering a culture of safety within your facility.

Integration with Powerfleet Products

The solution can also work hand in hand with our Forklift Gateway product to not only identify near misses, but capture event details like breach location, time, and driver identification.

Standalone System

The Pedestrian Proximity Detection solution can function as a standalone system and alert the operator to help avoid an incident or can be integrated with our Speed Manager to slow or deactivate the accelerator pedal when an alert zone is breached.

Shining Light on Blind Spots

The Pedestrian Proximity Detection system assists the operator in situations where people or equipment may be operating in blind spots, or the operator is temporarily distracted or fatigued.

Alert Zones

Most operators use our Pedestrian Proximity Detection system to generate two primary alert zones. A Caution Zone, shown in yellow, triggers a visual  and audible alert for the operator when the zone is breached. Integrated with our Speed Manager, this also reduces the forklift’s speed.

The Danger Zone, shown in red, triggers a visual and audible warning for the operator when the closest zone is breached. For equipment integrated with our Speed Manager, a red zone breach reduces the acceleration to a minimal speed.

Connectivity Made Easy

Connecting with Powerfleet’s Pedestrian Proximity Detection system is easy through Wi-Fi, Cellular LTE or Bluetooth. 

Camera Options

Pedestrian Proximity Detection can operate up to four cameras, and each camera can project up to 5 independent alert zones – all processed through our platform. Options include an in-cab display monitor, a highly visible Pedestrian Alert Lighting System and integration to our Forklift Gateway.

For two-camera systems, Pedestrian Proximity Detection automatically switches cameras to only detect in the forklift’s direction of travel.

The system can alert for as many people or objects as is required – keeping your environment as safe as possible.
