Cat Rear Object Detection for Wheel Loaders

DESCRIPTION

Rear Object Detection for wheel loaders is a two-part system providing enhanced blind spot awareness. Radar provides visual and audible alerts when objects enter a safety proximity zone, while a camera allows the operator to see what's behind the machine when reversing.

ENSURING A SAFE JOB SITE

  • The Object Detection System is used to monitor objects that appear behind the machine, when the machine is in neutral with park brake disengaged or reverse.
  • Radar detection is integrated into the display of the rear backup camera providing a two tier safety system.
  • The radar system status indicator appears on the left side of the display. Depending on the level of activity and the detection state, the status indicator will appear as green, yellow, or red in color.
  • Object detection proximity bars provide five warning levels to indicate the nearness of an object.
  • An audible alert beeps more frequently as the machine gets closer to an object.
  • Warning levels change with the ground speed of the loader, reducing nuisance alarms.
