Bi Directional Worker ALERT is designed to detect forklift traffic approaching from two directions and warn pedestrians where the traffic is coming from by activating a warning device.


Bi Directional Worker ALERT has two independent outputs that will activate depending on which sensor detects a forklift.

Typical use cases are:

  • Protect pedestrians and drivers at multi-way intersections
  • Warn pedestrians at blind corners
  • Warn pedestrians of an approaching forklift before they step out into an active traffic aisle.
