Doosan Infracore has introduced the industry’s first ‘transparent bucket’ mounted wheel loader allowing drivers to see blind spots in front of the bucket.
The transparent bucket is a system that allows the wheel loader driver to see blind spots in front of the bucket through the monitor in the cockpit. The innovative system records images in front of the wheel loader with cameras installed at the top and bottom of the equipment and shows combined images in real time using a curved projection method.
The front of the wheel loader has been considered an area prone to major safety issue due to its blind spots. With the transparent bucket function, however, the driver can easily check the blind spot in front of the bucket through the monitor and prevent safety accidents. Another advantage is that it can significantly improve work efficiency by enabling a forward-view perspective during loading/unloading or when carrying soil and sand.
Doosan Infracore is the world’s first to develop and apply a front projection function with the transparent bucket for construction machines and has applied for patents in Korea, North America, Europe, and China. The company has also exhibited this technology and received favourable reviews at the CES 2020 held in Las Vegas last year.
The company has also installed various cutting-edge safety systems to its construction equipment such as the around view monitor (AVM) system that can monitor the equipment’s surroundings, and a rear warning system using ultrasonic sensors, receiving favourable responses from customers.
