The objective of Knowit’s assignment was to protect workers from the dangers that heavy equipment can present. Knowit developed a solution including presence sensors and UWB (ultra wideband) radio technology. The solution involves monitoring of heavy equipment where the operator is warned when someone approaches. Virtual “red zones” show whether workers are in an area where they should not be.
Knowit did it all, from generating ideas to testing the solution and finding suitable manufacturers. Delete and Knowit are continuing to work to complete the solution. The goal is to markedly improve safety without disrupting work and productivity.
