Pedestrian Detection Systems

Proximity warning solutions that reduce the risk of accidents between pedestrian workers and moving vehicles using pedestrian detection technology

Pedestrian safety around moving vehicles is vital to keeping your workforce safe. Automated detection is one of the many advantages of using proximity warning technology.


ZoneSafe Vehicle To Person Alert is a pedestrian detection system that significantly reduces the risk of accidents between pedestrians and moving vehicles such as forklift trucks, shovel loaders, or any materials handling vehicles. Using a ZoneSafe proximity warning system gives you the following advantages:

  • Tried and trusted pedestrian detection & proximity warning technology
  • Strong tag vibration warns pedestrian workers of approaching vehicles
  • Complete 360 degree pedestrian detection around vehicles eliminates vehicle blind spots and hard to spot areas
  • 100% pedestrian detection, even behind objects, significantly reduces the risk of accidents
  • Pedestrian detection through walls, racking, and even around blind corners
  • Masked detection areas where pedestrian detection is not required
  • Fits any type of vehicle including materials handling & forklifts
  • In-house manufacturing means we can tailor the system to suit your requirements

ZoneSafe Pedestrian Detection System Components

ZoneSafe Antenna

The ZoneSafe antenna (or proximity sensor) is fitted to the vehicle. The antenna creates an invisible 360 degree adjustable detection zone around the vehicle and will detect ZoneSafe tags up to ten metres away.

ZoneSafe Control Unit

Positioned next to the driver in the cab of the vehicle, the ZoneSafe Control Unit warns the driver of every pedestrian detection, alerting the driver to the pedestrian workers' close proximity via an audible and visual alarm.

ZoneSafe Tags

ZoneSafe tags are worn by all pedestrian workers helping to make your workforce completely detectable. Upon detection, ZoneSafe Vibratags also vibrate, warning the wearer to any approaching vehicles.

Detection Zone

The detection zone is an invisible bubble around the vehicle created by the ZoneSafe antenna. Each tag is automatically detected within the zone and can be adjusted to detect tags up to 10 metres away.

ZoneSafe Vehicle To Person Alert - Pedestrian Detection

ZoneSafe Vehicle to Person Alert works by identifying tags worn by pedestrian workers. Pedestrians are warned of approaching vehicles through tag vibration, while drivers are warned of pedestrians via the in-cab control unit.
