What You Will Learn

Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) in new cars have been standard features for years, and there is broad consensus among motorists, auto makers and regulators that ADAS make driving automobiles much safer. So why have similar safeguards for industrial trucks not been adopted more widely in the material handling industry? Sadly, as OSHA statistics make clear, lift trucks and other material handling equipment (MHE) are still a major cause of workplace accidents. In this seminar, we will explore the lessons we can learn from the automotive industry’s use of ADAS technology, examine the common safety issues surrounding MHE, and discuss how these problems can be mitigated with the help of the latest technological developments in ADAS. We will also look at how collaboration between industrial truck OEMs, technical associations and ADAS suppliers might speed up wider adoption of these systems—and how the advancement of digitization, robotics and autonomous vehicle technology can change practices for the better in the material handling sector.

Key Takeaways

• Insights into how automobile technology can impact material handling equipment safety systems in the future
• What lessons the material handling industry can apply from the automotive sector’s use of Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems
