BodyGuard™

Lowers risk of collision in many ways

  • Person to Vehicle
  • Person to Machine
  • Vehicle to Vehicle
  • Vehicle to work area or zone
  • Area access control and boom gates
  • Slow vehicle speed
  • Stop movement of machine
slide7

BodyGuard™

Best choice of technology available

  • Orbit considered the main technologies available
  • All available technologies found to have limitations
  • Distracts Driver, constant cleaning
  • Affected by heat
  • Affected by noise from machinery
  • False alarms from objects
  • False alarms from objects
  • No-go indoors, needs infrastructure
  • Reliant on reflective surface
  • Short range, not fully evaluated
  • Reflections on metal surfaces
  • Camera systems
  • Infra red
  • Ultrasonic
  • Microwave
  • Radar
  • GPS
  • Laser
  • RFID
  • Wireless
  • Wireless technology showed least limitations
  • Orbit already has significant experience with wireless
slide8

BodyGuard™

Least limitations – Most advantages

  • Operates in smoke, dust, rain
  • Not distract driver from normal operations
  • No ongoing cleaning or adjustments
  • Indoor and outdoor use
  • System uses real-time data – ID, groups of Types etc
  • No False alarms from objects not fitted with BodyGuard™
  • Safety zones are individually adjustable

slide10

BodyGuard™

System Components continued

  • TAG Smart Charger Unit
  • TAG drops into charging cradle
  • Quick charge (3 hours)
  • Trickle charge keeps TAG topped up
  • Fixed Unit
  • Located in common work/safe zone
  • Ideal for access way, packing areas
  • Controls strobe light and/or siren
  • Powered by 230VAC
  • Transmits and Receives
slide11

BodyGuard™

How it works

  • BodyGuard™ Device can be fitted to Vehicle, Machinery or Person
  • BodyGuard™ sets up invisible safety zone around the object.
  • The Safety-Zone is adjustable from 1m

to 100m

  • BodyGuard™ Programmable outputs control equipment

TAG

  • Last 2000 “near-miss” events stored in Log
  • History Records can be downloaded from any unit (Except TAGs).
  • Higher number “near miss” events indicate trouble spots
  • Make changes to work flow and compare for reduction in risk

Limitations of Wireless Technology

  • Practical case – Vehicle and Environmental effects
  • Ideal case – Open ground, no metal reflections
  • Increasing Zone compensates
