How does it work?
Radio frequency identification (RFID) technology allows ZoneSafe to construct detection zones around vehicles, assets, crossing points and walkways.
Active tags can be use in several ways: worn by staff, fitted to assets or setup around hazards. Once the tags are in operation, the proximity warning system identifies the tags when entering the detection zone. An audible visual alert is then generated cautioning vehicle operators of the close distance between the tag and the vehicle. ZoneSafe tags will be identified regardless of obstructions, blind spots or poor visibility. Some of the features of the ZoneSafe proximity warning system are:
