Vehicle Detection System
The ZoneSafe Vehicle Detection System is a long range vehicle to vehicle detection solution designed to provide an early warning alert to the driver when vehicles approach each other.
The system provides a low cost solution helping to reduce the risk of collisions between industrial vehicles. ZoneSafe Vehicle Detection is ideally suited for large scale off highway applications where vehicle movements and mixed vehicle types are operating together such as open cast mines and quarries.
Detection between vehicles requires line of sight with a detection distance up to 60 metres. Options are available for shorter distances depending on a number of factors such as environment and traffic concentration within the area of operation. The system is able to communicate and provide a warning for up to 15 vehicles within the predetermined threshold at any one time.
The main control unit will record and save events including detections. This data can be downloaded from the control unit and viewed using ZoneSafe software via an android smart phone and our hosted ZoneSafe cloud for further reporting and analysis. Detection data helps to identify risk hot spots and improve traffic management.
How Does Vehicle Detection Work?
On smaller vehicles and machinery a single ZoneSafe antenna is fitted on top of the roof emitting a 360° line of sight safety detection zone of up to 60 metres.
On larger vehicles multiple ZoneSafe antennas are fitted to the front, back and sides of the vehicle to create the 360° line of sight detection zone of up to 60 metres.

- Features antenna and in cab control unit
- 360° Field of view
- Up to 60m line of sight detection
- Communicate with 15 vehicles simultaneously
- Audible visual warning alarm

The safety of our employees is paramount in our business and DSSP are always looking for initiatives and innovations that can help us provide as safe a working environment as possible. ZoneSafe provides a simple but significant addition to the fleet of trucks here at Featherstone combining ease of use with reliability. We are using this in areas where pedestrians and moving machinery have to work together and it has clearly improved the awareness and confidence of both truck operators and pedestrians. I consider this to be a major addition to our effective health and safety management systems.
We consider this a valuable and reliable tool which will significantly increase safety in our daily operations and aid us in our effort to transform APM Terminals Callao into a very safe place where everyone enjoys working while being safe doing so.
We've been using Zonesafe for nearly 4 years now (fitted on 10 forklifts) and the system has contributed to us having no LTI's or MTI's across two very busy sites. I highly recommend this technology.
