AI-powered solution for industrial workplace safety

Problem statement

Collision risks: One of the main problems in forklift safety is the risk of collisions between forklifts and other vehicles, as well as between forklifts and pedestrians. This can cause injuries and damage to equipment.

Blind spots: Forklifts have blind spots, which can make it difficult for operators to see other vehicles and pedestrians. This increases the risk of collisions.

Fatigue: Operating a forklift for long periods of time can lead to operator fatigue, which can result in decreased reaction times and increased risk of accidents.

Poorly maintained equipment: Forklifts that are not properly maintained can be more prone to accidents and breakdowns, which can create hazards for operators and other employees.

Limited visibility: Forklifts often operate in poorly lit or crowded warehouses, which can limit visibility and increase the risk of collisions and accidents.

Solution overview

One of Australia's providers of vehicular interaction solutions approached OptiSol to develop a Pedestrian Avoidance System (PAS) in order to protect the staff and operators of forklifts from potential harm.

Their traditional collision avoidance systems create high numbers of nuisance alerts, which leads to drivers ignoring alerts, which dilutes the value of the system.

OptiSol designed a solution that uses Deep Learning to identify humans and calculates their risk in the proximity of forklifts.

We used AI/ML to minimize false alarms by evaluating multiple danger factors around the vehicles through various AI/ML algorithms.

Our designers also added enterprise features and management capabilities to the solution, notifying managers of incidents that would have gone unreported.

Business impact

Improved safety: AI-based pedestrian avoidance systems can help reduce the risk of collisions between forklifts and pedestrians, which can lead to fewer accidents, injuries and fatalities.

Real-time monitoring: AI can provide real-time monitoring of the warehouse environment, which can help to detect potential hazards and alert operators to take action.

Increased Efficiency: AI can help operators navigate through the warehouse more efficiently, reducing the risk of collisions and improving overall productivity.

Cost savings: AI-based systems can help businesses save money by reducing the number of accidents and associated costs, such as lost time, legal fees, and insurance claims.

Compliance: AI-based systems can help businesses comply with safety regulations, which can help avoid penalties and legal issues.
