Title: Advanced Sensing Towards Improved Forklift Safety
Published: February 04, 2011
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology's Intelligent Systems Division has been researching advanced three-dimensional (3D) imaging sensors and their use in manufacturing towards improving forklift safety. Experiments are presented in this paper and describe how the sensors can augment a forklift operator's perception of obstacles nearby. Interoperability of the obstacle/pedestrian detection information from these sensors to facility or other forklifts for broader alerts is also possible.
