D2SENSE closes the safety gap, as especially people are detected reliably in the danger zone of machines by D2SENSE. Increase the efficiency of your company, as operators can concentrate on their core activities.

Application Areas

Stone and earth industry, large construction sites, road construction sites, logistics, agriculture and forestry. D2SENSE is the solution for your safety issue.

D2SENSE - Pedestrian Detection for Earth Moving Machinery

D2SENSE stands for Distance-to-Sense and is the new pedestrian detection system for the danger zone of mobile equipment. The system consists of two devices: The KEEPER is installed in the machinery. The BEEPER is carried by people. As soon as people approach with a BEEPER, a warning is issued by the KEEPER - on both sides. Thereby, dangerous situations can be detected and avoided early in advance.

The specialty of D2SENSE is the distance determination between pedestrians and equipment on the basis of the radio signal. This allows D2SENSE to very accurate alert both the driver and the pedestrian in two different zones. The warning area is a circle around the construction machine, has no blind spots, and thus covers the entire area of danger. It is even possible - by the radio propagation characteristics - to "look around the corner" and to recognize persons behind obstacles.
