Industrial and mine safety technology provider Matrix Design Group has released their OmniPro Vision AI collision avoidance system. The system is designed to provide alerts when pedestrians, vehicles and other potential hazards are detected in the path of mobile equipment.

In a release, the company says OmniPro Vision AI allows customers to create fully customizable zones, and that it works well even in low-light and adverse-weather conditions. The company says the system is suitable for a wide range of equipment applications and operating environments.

Matrix Design Group says the platform minimizes the types of false positive and nuisance alerts that can often desensitize workers to alarms. The company says the system can identify individuals wearing PPE and pedestrians in any posture, from standing sideways to kneeling. It can give visual and audio zone-breach alerts for both equipment operators and pedestrians, and Matrix says it easily integrates with OEM controls for slowing and disabling machine movement.

The company says it also integrates with their OmniPro InFocus cloud application, a dashboard for real-time metrics and analytics. Matrix says the OmniPro InFocus system provides management with essential operational insights and intelligence to make the best decisions for the operation. All data, including zone breach incidents and timestamped photos, are recorded and stored for reference and reporting. Essential reporting, including average daily breaches per machine and trending breaches over time, is available, along with custom reporting and analytics.
