Blind spots around corners where pedestrians and forklifts intersect are a major cause of accidents. Pedestrians and employees hit by forklifts account for 20% of forklift accidents or about 19,000 people per year.
Every day in thousands of industrial environments, pedestrians and forklifts maneuver through buildings covering the same territory and often crossing the same path. When those paths cross at a “blind corner” intersection, the result is damaging – not only to the equipment and facility – but more importantly – to people.
Always on guard, 24/7, Collision Sentry stands watch over “blind corner” intersections in industrial settings where pedestrian traff ic and forklift traff ic converge. When motion is detected on both sides of the corner,
Collision Sentry works like a traff ic light to send a visual signal to warn approaching traff ic of a possible collision.
“If there is a blind corner where it is impossible to see traffic,
Collision Sentry will see for you.”

using standard D-cell alkaline batteries,
eliminating the need for any wiring to a facility’s electrical system.
Batteries are designed to operate for one to two years before battery
change depending on usage. The system is equipped with a low-battery
indicator that sends warning well in advance of the batteries needing
replacement. When needed, replacements are readily available.
Passive Infrared Motion Sensors
are programmed to detect
motion on both sides of the corner, sending a warning in ample time for
the forklift driver and the pedestrian to correct their movements. These
PIR sensors are a proven technology often used in security lighting and
alarm systems. They are rugged, feature a wide lens range and don’t
