3/21/24 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm CDT

Event Description

If you have an active warehouse or jobsite, the potential for collisions (vehicle vs. people and vehicle vs. vehicle) is high. Today, visual artificial intelligence is making warehouses, manufacturing plants, mines and construction sites safer by using the latest in AI modeling and cutting-edge hardware design. Visual AI can identify pedestrians, vehicles and other objects, alerting operators to their presence in time to avoid collisions.

Using an advanced application of this technology, the new OmniPro Vison AI enables line-of-travel, crosswalk and blind-spot alerting. This NIOSH-award-winning system works without personal wearable devices to “see” and identify people, vehicles, and hazards. OmniPro notifies both the operator and pedestrian via visual and/or audible alerts on the machine and reports on all zone breaches. These zones are highly customizable, enabling functionality on any mobile machine and in challenging operating environments.

Learn how visual AI can help increase workplace safety and reduce incidents in your operation.
