People Detection for Excavators

People Detection for Excavators

An intelligent camera system that helps to detect people working around excavators to improve jobsite safety. Cat Detect - People Detection for Excavators provides visual and audible alerts to operators when someone is too close to the machine.

DESCRIPTION

While machines are designed to maximize operator visibility, it can be challenging to constantly monitor what is going on around them. Cat® Detect - People Detection for excavators is an intelligent vision camera system that can alert an operator when someone enters within a machine’s hazard zone.

ENSURING A SAFE JOBSITE

  • Helps to reduce the risk of injury for people working around machinery.*
  • Differentiates people from background objects - detects multiple moving and stationary workers.
  • Provides visual and audible alerts to the operator using the in-cab display.
  • Utilizes the machine’s existing in-cab display and harness with a dealer-installed three-camera kit.
  • Designed to function without the need for additional technologies.
  • Compliments other safety systems and improves operator safety awareness.

* The system may not detect personnel in certain circumstances, such as fast swings speeds, people lying down or crouching, or when cameras are impaired by low light conditions (dusk, dawn, overcast), inclement weather (snow, rain, fog), or other similar conditions. See operation and maintenance manual regarding limitations of use.

HOW IT WORKS

  • Continuously monitors for personnel within three detection zones around the excavator.
  • Utilizes three cameras with up to 270-degree coverage - 9 m (29.5 ft) maximum detection distance.*
  • Highlights people with red detection boxes on the in-cab display to help increase operator awareness.
  • Triggers progressive visual and audible alerts based on a person’s proximity to the machine - three detection zones.
  • Detects multiple moving and stationary personnel simultaneously during machine travel and operation.
  • Provides both in-camera and off-camera monitoring.
  • Cat Detect - People Detection is not compatible with Cat Command remote control technologies.

* Detection distance is the approximate range from each camera.

IN-CAMERA MONITORING

  • When personnel are detected near a hazard zone, and within direct camera view, a visual alert is shown on the in-cab display*, and an audible alarm is played (optional).
  • Audible Alert Icons - Illustrate if the People Detection system is active (standby/on/off), if an audible alarm is active (on/off), or if there is a system error causing People Detection not to function properly.
  • Visual Alert Icons - Directional icon alerts indicate both location and distance level when personnel are detected. Three color levels provide approximate proximity to the machine - red (critical), amber (caution), and yellow (awareness).
  • People Detection Indicator - A red boundary box surrounds personnel that have been detected within a hazard zone to help increase operator awareness.

* The system may not detect personnel in certain circumstances, such as fast swings speeds, people lying down or crouching, or when cameras are impaired by low light conditions (dusk, dawn, overcast), inclement weather (snow, rain, fog), or other similar conditions. See operation and maintenance manual regarding limitations of use.

OFF-CAMERA MONITORING

  • When personnel are detected near a hazard zone but are not within direct camera view, a visual alert is shown on the in-cab display*, and an audible alarm is played (optional).
  • Audible Alert Icons - Communicate if the People Detection system is active (standby/on/off), if an audible alarm is active (on/off), or if there is a system error causing People Detection not to function properly.
  • Visual Alert Icons - Directional icon alerts indicate both location and distance level when personnel are detected. Three color levels provide approximate proximity to the machine - red (critical), amber (caution), and yellow (awareness).
  • Side Bar Indicators - Off-camera directional icon alerts indicate both location and distance level when personnel are detected. Three color levels provide approximate proximity to the machine - red (critical), amber (caution), and yellow (awareness).
  • People Detection Indicator - The red boundary box for personnel detection is not available in off-camera or 360-degree views.

* The system may not detect personnel in certain circumstances, such as fast swings speeds, people lying down or crouching, or when cameras are impaired by low light conditions (dusk, dawn, overcast), inclement weather (snow, rain, fog), or other similar conditions. See operation and maintenance manual regarding limitations of use.

HOW TO UPGRADE

  • Contact your Cat dealer for more information and how to order Cat Detect - People Detection for Excavators.
  • Model and technology availability may vary by region.
  • Cat Detect - People Detection compliments but does not replace the basic safety precautions and procedures for machine operation.
  • Always follow recommended safety procedures when operating or working around equipment.
