3D collision warning system

October 2020 Sensors & Transducers

The 3D collision warning system is based on the established 3D sensors from ifm. It precisely detects obstacles and visualises them in a 2D image on a monitor. This keeps the driver informed about the trigger of the alarm and the area to be monitored at all times. Thanks to powerful algorithms, false tripping is virtually excluded. The system is set up easily via the supplied operating display; no PC is required.

Ready-to-start application package

The set includes all components to set up a fully functioning collision warning system on a mobile machine, e.g. a forklift, wheel loader, excavator, reach stacker or transport vehicle within a few minutes.

Accident prevention: the driver can have poor visibility of some areas around the machine which can lead to dangerous situations. Further accident risks result from time pressure or fatigue of the machine operator. The ifm driver assistance system, which supports the daily work of the driver, provides the remedy.

Active obstacle detection: the active obstacle detection developed by ifm monitors six danger zones around the vehicle and warns the driver of imminent collisions in good time. For this purpose, a tried-and-tested 3D time-of-flight system from ifm is used which reduces false alarms to a minimum thanks to a sophisticated algorithm. Warnings are provided visually, acoustically and in the form of icons via the supplied 7-inch monitor.

Detection of reflective clothing: thanks to a special classification of reflective materials, e.g. reflective vests or clothing, the collision warning for persons can be given priority over other objects. This increases the safety of persons.

Retrofit set for mobile machines: the driver assistance system is provided as a ready-to-start application package. It contains all necessary components including any cables and mounting accessories. This means it can be easily retrofitted on all mobile machines with 24 V on-board systems.

Easy setup: after mechanical installation of the system and plug-and-play wiring, setup is carried out within a few minutes via the supplied colour display. Only a few parameters are required in the intuitive setup process. Then the system is ready for operation.
