Litum Forklift Collision Warning System Honored for Exceptional Innovation
19.07.2022 – Litum announced today that Forklift Collision Warning System Product has received a 2022 IoT Evolution Product of the Year Award from IoT Evolution World, the leading Web site covering IoT technologies.
“Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) states that more than 30,000 forklift and equipment accidents occur each year. This innovative system reduces forklift speed or stops them when they get too close to other forklifts and pedestrians without driver intervention. Therefore, it solves a major workplace safety problem faced by manufacturing facilities and warehouses.” said Alp Ulku, Co-founder of Litum.
How does Litum Forklift Collision Warning System work?
Litum integrates ultra-wideband (UWB) active RTLS technology into battery-powered, active RFID tags installed on forklifts and lifting equipment. These forklift tracker tags work in conjunction with our RTLS mesh network, installed throughout your facility, to create an invisible “indoor GPS system” that monitors every forklift’s location with the highest accuracy.
The signals from each forklift tracking tag are converted into location data using various algorithms such as time difference of arrival, time of flight, and trilateration. The location of each vehicle and its operator is then sent on to our RTLS application software that is installed on your servers, where they are interpreted and displayed in an easy-to-understand manner.
