ELOspeed - radar based driver-assistance system automatic speed reduction of vehicles to prevent accidents
In production and warehousing facilities, the transition from outdoor to indoor working areas poses a particular risk.
Forklift drivers are typically permitted to accelerate to maximum speed when outside, but are supposed to slow down when transitioning indoors for safety reasons. ELOspeed, a radar-based system developed jointly with our automotive industry customers, allows vehicles to operate at full speed outdoors, but automatically slows them down to a programmable speed limit as they come inside.
How it works
ELOspeed is an OEM independent product, which enables quick and easy implementation of speed reduction requirements. With its universal interfaces, ELOspeed can be integrated into any kind of vehicle. ELOspeed detects superstructures (i.e. roofs) across a range of up to 24 metres with its radar-based sensor system, and then automatically reduces the vehicle's speed to walking pace.
There are four settings for ELOspeed's reaction time and eight settings for its detection range. This means that even complex operational conditions can be catered for. The sensitivity of the controllable transmitter also ensures that small superstructures such as bridges, tree canopies and pipelines will not trigger any unnecessary reduction in the forklift's speed.
The benefitsof ELOspeed:are obvious:
Automatically reduce the speed of your MHE in high risk areas
Compatible with all major forklift truck models
Extreme reliability and weatherproof
Safer and more efficient material handling operations
