A combined camera and monitor system, RadarEye merges the advantages of visibility and detection. The system offers forklift truck drivers the best possible view of their surroundings, backed up by an active warning system that issues a signal when something or someone is behind the forklift truck. Orlaco has developed this radar unit in addition to its visibility system.

RadarEye warns several of the operator’s senses. Bright green, yellow, and red signals are visible when an object or person moves within the danger zone to the rear of the forklift truck. Anything that moves within this zone is visualized by the monitor, preventing both personal injury and material damage. The radar unit sounds an audible alarm immediately, automatically activates the correct monitor, and selects the correct camera.

The radar unit is integrated in the visibility system, which means the settings for the radar unit(s) and camera(s) can be controlled from the monitor. Detection range can be set from 2 to 20 meters and is divided into five equal zones. The monitor tells the operator if the radar unit is working and will give a signal when it is faulty. Thanks to an adaptive filter, the radar units are insensitive to external influences such as snow, rain, mud, and temperature fluctuations. These robust radar units are not only waterproof, but also are built to withstand industrial shock and vibrations. The operator can adjust sensitivity on the monitor according to his requirements.

Large forklift trucks and container handlers may especially benefit from this warning system. These machines have large blind spots, complicated by hectic activity surrounding the forklift truck. A closed cabin isolates the operator from any external noise.

When reversing, RadarEye keeps an eye on the rear, enabling the operator to concentrate on his load at the front. Only when something or someone moves into the danger zone will RadarEye give an active signal, prompting the operator to look at the image on the monitor and act accordingly. RadarEye also has ergonomic benefits, since the operator no longer has to look over his shoulder as frequently.
