Seen Safety’s new IRIS 860 LIDAR sensor actively detects reflective tape on high-vis safety gear, transforming the standard high-vis vest into part of an active pedestrian detection system for forklifts and other mobile plant.

Seen’s IRIS 860 pedestrian detection sensor detects the reflective tape on day/night high-vis safety gear and warns the driver and pedestrian of danger. The defined detection zone and (optional) reverse-only activation make it ideal for use in busy environments where pedestrians frequently work in close proximity to machines. Only the key hazard area is targeted, meaning irrelevant detections and operator annoyance are eliminated. Simple!

Seen works with industry leading companies in a variety of industries. If you’d like to discuss how Seen sensors can help with your traffic management plan, get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.
