Keep forklifts and mobile equipment operating safety
In warehouses, manufacturing plants and other industrial environments, ensuring vehicle safety is a major challenge. The disruption caused by vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-pedestrians and vehicle-to-infrastructure collisions are extremely costly. By providing visibility into where equipment, personnel and other important assets are in relation to one another, disruptive mistakes are avoided, helping keep workflow and productivity on schedule.
Redpoint RealTime Location System (RTLS) helps you prevent potential safety incidents by providing:
Collision Avoidance: When vehicles get too close to each other, to pedestrians, or fixed objects on the ground, the Redpoint RTLS system generates a warning to alert pedestrians and drivers. You also have the capability of setting up the system to actively slow down or stop vehicles when the system detects violations of the rules you have established.
Safety Rule Enforcement:Fleet managers and operations personnel use Redpoint’s RTLS system and the built-in geofencing features to create restricted zones that create virtual electronic barriers in order to:
Prevent vehicles from entering prohibited areas (e.g. height- or weight-restricted areas)
Slow vehicles down to a designated speed limit
Stop vehicles when traveling in the wrong direction
Force vehicles to stop at intersections or blind spots
Traceability and Accountability: If an incident does occur, you can recreate the scene using historic tracking data to review the situation through Redpoint’s web-based software, SiteWise.
Active and Passive vehicle control solutions:In active vehicle control mode, the system takes real-time location data and generates alarms to immediately alert the driver or automatically slow down or stop the vehicle.
If you need to know the location and path of a vehicle at any point in time, passive control may be the most effective solution. SiteWise software shows you where each tagged vehicle is.
