THE BLAXTAIR® : PEDESTRIAN ANTI-COLLISION CAMERA
A relevant warning for machinery operators to ensure pedestrian safety
The only one of its kind, the Blaxtair® is the only smart camera able to distinguish a person from another obstacle in real time and alert the operator in case of danger. When combined with effective organization and best practices, this reliable and efficient device, composed of a camera, calculator and LCD screen, is THE answer to the safety parameters imposed on companies working in industry, materials handling, recycling, infrastructure construction and quarry or mining.
THE TECHNOLOGY : RECOGNITION OF PEOPLE USING IMAGE PROCESSING
The Blaxtair® uses its sensor to continuously scan the blind areas around the machine and reconstruct its environment in 3D.
The identification of the nature of each obstacle is based on powerful video recognition algorithms. If a person is detected in the danger zone, depending on the imminent risk, the Blaxtair gives off a visual and sound signal to alert the driver. A 7” control screen in the cabin allows the driver to judge the critical nature of the situation.
On industrial storage sites, forklift trucks often operate near pedestrians, leading to increased risk of collision due to the narrow width of aisles. The operator’s manoeuvres must be quick and accurate, while also staying alert to any nearby movement. In these sensitive areas of co-activity, the Blaxtair instantly signals the presence of any people in the machine’s path. Workers operating on foot therefore remain safe. The driver can concentrate on their job, thereby increasing their productivity.
A pedestrian can escape the driver's view, but nobody can escape the vigilance of Blaxtair®!
BLAXTAIR, in real time :
- View of all important obstacles
- Analyzes forms
- Recognizes that it is a pedestrian
- Warns the driver
Classic systems such as radars or ultrasonic devices warn the driver of a wheel loader that descends a very strong slope too late, while Blaxtair® does not confuse the ground and an obstacle. It only warns the driver if a pedestrian appears to be in the danger zone.
WHY BLAXTAIR® ?
- Blaxtair® increases safety in your workplace
by preventing accidents between machines and pedestrians, thanks to the smart 3D camera that is able to recognize people in the danger areas of the machine and warn the driver.
- Blaxtair® reduces the operating costs of your machine
Thanks to the obstacle recognition and ambient camera, the driver is warned of obstacles that can damage the machine and / or goods, vehicles, buildings.
- Blaxtair® increases productivity at your workplace
by enabling the operator to monitor the blind corners of the machine on the screen in the cabin and thus without having to turn himself.
- Blaxtair® provides the evidence in case of accidents
by delivering the last three (3) hours of video feed through the recording device (option)
