Doosan Infracore Demos ‘Transparent Bucket’ Function for Wheel Loaders
The front of the wheel loader has been considered a major safety issue due to blind spots. That’s why Doosan Infracore, Seoul, South Korea, has introduced a ‘transparent bucket’ function on a wheel loader. The system allows wheel loader drivers to see blind spots in front of the bucket via a monitor in the cab.
The system records images in front of the wheel loader with cameras installed at the top and bottom of the bucket and shows the combined images in real time using a curved projection method.
According to the manufacturer, Doosan Infracore is the first company to develop and apply a front projection function like the transparent bucket for a construction machine.
“As construction safety standards have been significantly reinforced, the advanced safety system has become the key equipment option. We plan to continue developing functions that can protect the safety of drivers and nearby workers and lead the creation of accident-free construction sites,” a Doosan Infracore official said.
