New Seegrid Video Highlights Safety Features of Vision Guided Vehicles
Pittsburgh, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/18/2016 -- Seegrid, the pioneer and leader in three-dimensional vision navigation, recently released a new video about the safety features of their vision guided vehicles. Forklift accidents costs warehouse and manufacturers valued profits and injuries to workers. 34,000 serious injuries occur each year from forklifts. Vision guided vehicles (VGVs) solve safety challenges by removing the decision making process: no traveling at unsafe speeds or ignoring safety protocols. VGVs follow the rules of the road, traveling on pre-defined routes. VGVs create a safe and collaborative environment for everyone working in the facility.
Safety is driving momentum for forklift-free environments. Although training and legislation are instrumental in managing some degree of risks associated with forklifts, statistics reveal numerous accidents occur every year, providing reason for greater acceptance of forklift-free environments. This motivation towards forklift-free leads the way to adopting a more efficient form of transport–vision guided vehicles –favorably driving benefits beyond safety and profitability.
