While operators can easily see in front of them while working, it is difficult to always monitor what goes on behind them. The Cat® Vision System with Personnel Detection technology kit is an effective solution that utilizes a smart camera to alert the operator when a person is behind the machine.
Detailed Equipment Specifications
PROTECT GROUND WORKERS
Cat Vision Systems increase operator confidence to work efficiently on the jobsite. The camera system actively monitors changing jobsite conditions to give operators clear, real-time feedback. The smart camera technology differentiates between people and background objects. In-cab audible and visual alerts help to reduce the risk of injury for ground personnel working around machinery.
HOW IT WORKS
When a person is detected behind the machine, the system triggers a visual and audible alert, based on their proximity to the machine. When a person is in the YELLOW zone, the system identifies the detected person on the display, but does not provide an audible alert. When a person is in the ORANGE zone, the system identifies the detected person on the display and provides an intermittent audible alert. When a person is in the RED zone, the system identifies the detected person on the display and provides a solid, audible alert. All people detected on the display are identified by a red box.
DETECTION BEHIND THE MACHINE
The system detects personnel in a wider field of view than is shown on the display. Visual alerts indicate a person in the off-display zones. When a person is in the off-display zone, the system will provide red or yellow on-screen indicator bars based on proximity to the machine.
The universal camera can be retrofitted on all brands of equipment – ideal for mixed fleet use. The complete system can be installed in about six to eight hours on any closed cab machine with a 12V or 24V system. Each personnel detection kit includes one (1) smart camera with personnel detection algorithm and one (1) high definition, touchscreen display. Harnessing to connect the components is also included. The kit is designed to function without the need for additional technologies. Talk to your Cat dealer for more information and how to order the Cat Vision System with Personnel Detection kit.
