ELOshield - Proximity Detection System for Pedestrians, Forklift Trucks and Hazardous Areas

ELOshield - assistance system for forklift trucks
reduces the risk of accidents in high risk or high traffic zones

ELOshield is the innovative personnel detection system from ELOKON. Anywhere where forklift trucks and personnel work in close proximity can constitute a hazard, and protecting the workforce is paramount. ELOshield is a radio-based proximity identification system that considerably enhances safety by automatically detecting when a person enters the danger area surrounding a forklift.

Avoid collisions preventively

ELOshield can also be used to prevent collisions between forklift trucks or, with the stationary version, for monitoring danger areas such as busy intersections with high levels of internal traffic.

Warning and protection zones for maximum safety

Individually configurable protection zones: ELOshield offers accident prevention using sophisticated warning zones. These zones can be programmed circularly, symmetrically (optional) and even as user-defined fields (optional) with a maximum range of up to 25 metres. Forklift trucks can safely pass other vehicles or pedestrians as they are automatically limited to their own path by the protective zone surrounding them, without causing false alarms.

Winning solution ELOshield

Winning solution: ELOshield

Applications: 360-degree compatibility

ELOshield works on robots, cobots (collaborative robots) and AGVs (automated guided vehicles), as well as forklifts and other industrial vehicles.

OEM-independent, easy to install

ELOshield can be installed on any type of forklift truck – any brand, any age. Our innovative driver-assistance systems can be fitted to new forklift trucks or retrofitted on your existing fleet.

This enables us to react quickly and flexibly to individual customer requirements.

This is how the ELOshield UWB-based protection system works

Proximity Detection System

ELOshield is an innovative, UWB-based protection system designed to shield vehicles and staff (ELOshieldGO). A mobile version (ELOshieldDRIVE) monitors “danger zones” of up to 25 metres around moving vehicles (both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-person). A fixed-site version (ELOshieldZONE) monitors accident-prone areas, such as high-traffic aisle intersections.

ELOKON GmbH takes great care in compiling the contents of this 3D animation. They are nevertheless only meant to provide non-binding general information and cannot replace detailed individual advice to help the prospective buyer make his decision.

The ELOshield assistance system can only support the driver within the specified system limits. The responsibility for remaining sufficiently alert and carrying out driving or operational duties always rests with the drivers and/or personnel.

Prevent unnecessary damage to your automated guided vehicles. With the ELOshield AGV module.

With the ELOshield AGV module, accidents between automated guided vehicles (AGVs) and other industrial trucks (forklifts, etc.) equipped with the ELOshield system can be avoided. The AGV module corresponds to a UWB hardware device that acts as a stand-alone antenna and has a detection range of up to 15 metres.


ELOshield as an extra layer of protection makes it much safer for our deaf employee and was therefore the ideal choice for our specific requirements.
