Proyecto Perimeter Security
The Perimeter Security for Large Vehicles and Heavy Machinery project’s mission is to develop a fully commercial product, applicable cross-sectorally, for vehicles and machinery of great size and weight which require support personnel in their perimeter environment in order to carry out their activities.
This project is co-funded by the Centre for Technological and Industrial Development (CDTI), part of the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness, in the ERDF-Innterconecta 2016 call.
The members of the consortium aspire to satisfying needs that are not covered in a market composed of different target niches, in addition to exponentially growing their volume of activity, business and presence in a market as competitive as technology.
The aim is to improve the safety of workers who perform their work around heavy machinery through the activation of an alarm system that detects personnel within a range of between 10 and 30 metres. This system, equipped with cutting-edge technology, will enable drivers of heavy machine to know the location of the support personnel who work around the vehicle or machinery at all times, thereby preventing accidents as far as possible.
This detection system will enable safety to be managed from inside the vehicle itself through the implementation of new safety measures to prevent accidents involving the running over of personnel or other circumstances.
Despite the existence of appropriate precautions and safety protocols, circumstances that hinder contact between work colleagues can cause hazards. With this people and machinery positioning technology, the chances of an accident occurring are minimised.
