Arcure, a French company specializing in artificial intelligence applied to image processing in the industry, extends its product range with Blaxtair Connect, a smart accident prevention solution.
Blaxtair Connect helps companies proactively make changes to their site operations and to assist them in reaching their goal of zero vehicle/pedestrian incidents, by significantly reducing the risk of collisions.
Blaxtair Connect uses cellular connectivity to gather data from fleets of vehicles equipped with Blaxtair (number of pedestrian detections, timestamps, GPS location, etc.), regardless of their global location.
This data is presented on an online portal. It identifies areas where vehicles have the highest incidence of near misses with pedestrians, highlights the most dangerous machines, and determines the time and place where the risk of accident is highest. This key information gives companies the ability to make more impactful changes to their operating procedures and track the effectiveness of these preventive measures, resulting in a safer working environment.
“On the first sites where it was used, Blaxtair typically helped to reduce the number of near-misses between vehicles and pedestrians by two thirds. Every year, hundreds of thousands of handling and construction vehicles could be fitted with this solution around the world, to save lives,” said Franck Gayraud, Arcure CEO.
