Object detection system

RO55-Cat cameraCaterpillar has enhanced mine safety with the introduction of its new Cat Integrated Object Detection System. The system combines cameras, radar, and alarms to notify the operator when an object is close to the machine, but not in the operator’s field of vision. The system monitors and shows the operator the areas immediately around the truck. Radar information is processed by an on-board, touch-screen display, and the cameras allow the operator to identify what the radar detects. Three alarm levels indicate the proximity of an object or the urgency of taking action to avoid an object. The system is wholly contained on the machine and is scalable, allowing operators to start with just cameras and add radar later.
