|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.|
