Heavy Vehicle Collision Avoidance System

Heavy Vehicle Collision Avoidance System

Model: UWB-LAS
Overview:
This Long Engineering Vehicle Collision Avoidance Warning System utilizes the latest technology of what UWB features in precision standard. This technology is capable of significantly reducing the risk of avoiding collision especially between moving vehicle and pedestrian in working spaces. Whilst the system is measuring the distance at all time, it simultaneously creates an invisible barrier to actively detect vehicle or pedestrians who exists in a hazardous area of each to reduce the likeliness of collision event. Our system features both audible and visual warning, it also has a adjustable caution range between 0.1m ~100m, which in all increases the compatibility in different occasion and environment.


There are 3 main components consists in this system:

Static Siren (Static): Suitable for deployments at entrances and exits. Detects nearby forklift that is approaching.

Forklift Siren (Dynamic): Suitable for vehicles. Detects nearby forklifts equipped with a siren and pedestrian who wears a tag.

TAG (Dynamic): Suitable for pedestrians. Detects nearby forklifts equipped with a siren and pedestrian who wears a tag.

System Architecture   Suitable Scenarios

 

➤ Application Overview :

Equipments: 
 1. UWB Audible LED beacon - Forklift UTAG - SL90F
 2. Audible LED beacon - UoT SL90F-NB
 3. UWB Personnel TAG UTAG - 9056 | UTAG - 5136 | UTAG - H04 | UTAG - 7351

Working principle:

When installing an anti-collision system on heavy-duty vehicles, it is recommended to have both the front and the back of the vehicle equipped with a sensing device. (UTAG-SL90F) should be installed at the front and UWB-04F (Waterproofing) or UTAG-SL90F install should be installed at the back. The device installed at the back will sense any nearby personnel carrying a TAG, and transmit a signal through the wired cable to alert the driver (visual alert: green color ) when someone is behind the vehicle. 

The working principle above is applicable to all kinds of heavy-duty vehicles such as excavators, crane trucks and long vehicles, etc. Currently, there are two available solutions for customers who are interested in applying this technology in practice.
Case A: UWB-04F +10m cable + SL90F (Model:BP-1503)

Case B: UWB-04F +10m cable + SL90F-NB (Model:BP-1603)

Case B is capable to upload real-time GPS location via NB-IoT to the cloud and in the event of an emergency, users who have access to the cloud will be notified immediately. The record contains the vehicles location and impact vehicle (equipped with an anti-collision device)

 

Scenario: Fuel Tank Truck

 

 

 

 

 


Scenario: Excavator

 

 

 

Scenario: Crane Truck

    Animation Demo:


 

Alarm distance setting:

      According to the different crane type, the sensing range of the induction lamp can be installed is different (for example, 5m for excavator and 8m for crane).
        It is only necessary to set the sensing distance for the alarm light placed on the crane body, and it is not necessary to set the sensing range of tag for the alarm light separately.
     The tag worn by the walking personnel can respond to the signal sent by the alarm light of the current type of crane according to the different operation range of the crane.
     As shown in the figure below, workers may go to the range of 8m induction lamp or 5m induction lamp. If it is 5m induction lamp, there will be no alarm between 8m and 5m.

10Product Description: A collision avoidance system for long vehicles is a composition of an audible LED beacon (SL90F-NB) and waterproofing  personnel detector (UWB-04F). When a pedestrian that carries a tag   approaches UBW-04F an audible and visible alarm will be triggered to alert the driver inside the cockpit. In the meantime, SL90F-NB will upload the contact record containing the TAG ID, time, and GPS location of the event to the cloud while the administrators who have access to the app will receive a notification. This ensures the interaction between driver and pedestrian is recorded and monitored at all times for safety purposes.
