In order to be identified by the PAS system, pedestrians carry electronic RFID tags or transponders that alert the driver of a potential human risk with clearly visible flashing lights.
This Pedestrian Alert System (PAS) consists of the following components:
Detection Antennas - 2 units: front and rear.
Indicator light – a beacon indicating when a pedestrian is located within the risk zone of the truck.
Test-tag – an active device which ensures the correct functioning of the system.
Driver inhibitor – it overrides the detecting abilities of the driver when inside the vehicle.
Personal tag – it protects pedestrians from being run over by forklifts or other commercial vehicles.
Tag verification antenna – a device used to check and record the proper functioning of RFID tags and batteries.
Detection distance is automatically adjusted depending on the speed of the machine.
Front detection from 0.5 to 6.5 metres.
Lateral detections of up to 4 metres.
Easy implementation by local distributor or installer.
Durable and robust system components.
Applicable to all types of industrial vehicles.
AREAS OF APPLICATION
Poor visibility areas such as junctions where pedestrians and forklifts may intersect or where storage corridor exist.
Work spaces shared by machines and pedestrians such as production lines where the space for the movement of personnel and forklifts is very limited.
Increased supervision and protection of persons external to the workplace.
Reduced number of accident compensation claims.
Bargaining tool in the negotiation for reduced fees of insurance policies.
Additional differentiation between obstacles and people not found in other comparable systems.
LIMITATIONS OF THE PAS
Optimum speeds between 6 Km/h and 8 Km/h.
