A French company has created a solution to be used on industrial and construction sites during materials handling and lifting in order to prevent collision between moving trucks and pedestrians and safety zones between them. They are looking for distributors.
Every year in France, there have been twenty deaths and more than 1.2 million days of consecutive work stoppage at incidents involving materials handling and lifting. To fight against this scourge, a material handling expert and a research department of innovative technology products developed with the collaboration of a French famous industrial group, a system to resolve the co-activity issue between moving trucks and pedestrians.
This French company offers you mobile truck / pedestrian collision prevention technology in industrial and logistics settings that is both intelligent and 100% reliable.
The solution covers:
- pedestrians: to prevent collisions between moving trucks and individual people
- trucks: to prevent collisions between trucks
- danger zones: to create safety zones and protect everything within the danger zones (machines, pedestrians, ....)
This is indeed the first patented system whose technology can detect a presence through the metal, the wall or the doorway. Developed on the encoded magnetic technology, the system can detect badges worn by pedestrians, fixed on the mobile trucks or in the identified danger zones. This is a prevention system that alerts the person with a sound and vibrating alert as soon as there is a risk of collision with a pedestrian or with mobile truck.
The main advantages of the solution are:
- 360° around the truck (alternatives: max = 120°)
- Up to 16 meters (alternative: max 7 meters)
- even in harsh metal environments, even where people are behind metal or concrete walls. (alternative: not detecting through metal or concrete)
- alerts both the driver and the pedestrian at the same time (alternative: no alert for both)
- interacts with the truck to dynamically adapt the speed based on the level of danger (alternative: no interaction with the truck)
3. And beyond
- no adverse effects on health nor electronic equipment (alternative: not always proven)
- is fully customizable to suit the customers' needs (alternative: not customizable
The company is now sought in many European countries: the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Italy, etc., as well as Canada. The company would like to find distributors already selling safety products/solutions for handling equipment.
The company developed a safety solution to avoid collisions. It is the first one that makes use of magnetics field variation. Other technologies exist but are limited. The solution can be used in metal environment.
This technology is the first to offer bidirectional alerts. When the pedestrian and the mobile truck come within a pre-set distance from one another, the equipment alerts both the pedestrian and the driver. Both can react to keep themselves safe.
This is not a product available «off-the-shelf ». It is a solution that the company can customize through a combined effort with the client company, using its integration tools. The system is tailored to the client needs to bring optimal results for a safer professional environment.
This technology unlike competitors tecnologies is the only to cover a distance of 16 meters at an angle of 360 °. It also works well in a straight line (forward and in reverse with turn). It allows to pass through the concrete and metal and recognize a man lying on the floor. This is the only technology to alert the driver and the pedestrian.
In addition, the system interacts with the truck to adjust the speed according to the level of danger. Automatically slowing the vehicle in case of danger out, the system allows the truck to roll continuously at the most suitable speed.
Each production site is different, a study is made previously in the field by a qualified technician to assess the real and specific needs in collision avoidance and propose the most appropriate application and the necessary settings. Online tools are available and available to customers, as implantation simulator or speed modeler that allows to adapt the system to the exact topography of a site.
Furthermore, the low frequency magnetic waves developed are completely harmless to health, including for pacemakers, as well as for the environment.
The techonology is compatible with nearly all kind of mobile trucks. For instance, the input voltage is 12 to 48 volts.
The solution is ready to be sold. It is already sold in many countries and the company is still working on improving it and developing new solutions.
The brand's name is registered. The French patent is granted. They applied for the WO patent and waiting to be granted.
The company is developing partnerships with distributors, rental companies and manufacturers. To become partners, they must follow a technical and commercial training, maintenance train their teams and acquire the tools and software dedicated to captive setting and maintenance. Once certified partners can offer their industrial customers tailored solutions based on a precise specification and become autonomous.
The company comes in medium to offer an answer to the problems specific to the site and train teams. The distributor partner provides the technical data of the machine, installs and sells the system and follows its evolution over time. The developped technology is compatible with all brands of existing rolling stock, particularly Jungheinrich, Still, Toyota, Mitsubishi with which partnerships are being established.
The company is looking for a distributor which is already selling safety products/solutions for handling equipment (manufacturers, resellers, repairers, etc). Target sectors include transport and logistics, handling, construction and public works, as well as collecting and recycling waste
This distributor must not be committed to one particular brand of handling equipment. The distributor would be in charge of the commercial and technical development in one country. Therefore, he has to be well implanted on the market.
