Ground Worker Detection
Cat® Detect for Personnel determines the temporary, dynamic dangerous work zone. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology is placed within protective equipment such as safety vests or hard hats, and an antenna is installed in equipment to communicate with the RFID tags. If an operator reverses a piece of equipment installed with an antenna, they will be alerted inside the cab with a visual and audible alarm when a ground worker is behind them. The loud audible alarm outside of the cab also alerts the ground worker of their interference of the detection zone behind the equipment.
