Toyota Material Handling Australia SpotMe warning system

Monday, 09 September, 2013 | Supplied by: Toyota Material Handling Australia Pty Ltd

The SpotMe warning system from Toyota Material Handling Australia (TMHA) is designed to guard against collisions at ‘blind’ intersections and help improve forklift safety within a warehouse.

Using infrared (IR) direction-sensitive sensors to detect the movement of approaching forklifts and pedestrians at the crossroads, the system can guard against both forklift-to-forklift and forklift-pedestrian collisions.

If a collision danger is spotted, the SpotMe warning unit is activated to help the forklift operator(s) and/or pedestrian to avoid an accident. The alternating flashing lights (LEDs) used by the system are claimed to be more efficient in preventing accidents than flashing beacons or other types of warning lights.

Other benefits claimed include: reduced wear and tear on the forklifts, reduced energy consumption and less chance of damage to goods as the risk of dropping goods is reduced.

Suitable for use at crossings, blind corners, doors and exits, the warning unit can be connected to a standalone battery or plugged into the mains, and the sensor battery lasts up to three years. The sensor and warning devices are simply fixed to the walls; no set-up is required on the mobile fleet.
