Q-Track Launches Unique Forklift Safety Technology
SafeSpot™ is a new wireless collision avoidance system.
(Huntsville, AL) January 14, 2015 — Q-Track Corporation (Q-Track) today launched an innovative forklift collision avoidance system, SafeSpot™. In the U.S., forklift accidents cost an estimated $3.7 billion per year and cause 20,000 serious injuries including 100 deaths. SafeSpot™ increases safety while ensuring OSHA compliance.
SafeSpot™ addresses safety requirements for warehouses, manufacturing, and industrial facilities. According to Stephen Werner, President and CEO of Q-Track, “SafeSpot™ eliminates false positives and differentiates between people and forklifts. This eliminates the need for workers to wear tags.”
Q-Track’s Near-Field Electromagnetic Ranging (NFER®) Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) employ low-frequency, long-wavelength signals to achieve accurate location information in challenging wireless environments where forklifts operate. The nuclear industry, the military, and manufacturing centers also use NFER® technology.
Q-Track delivers practical, indoor location solutions that provide value to customers. The company invented NFER® technology and is the sole provider of this unique approach to indoor location. Q-Track’s products provide high accuracy at a fraction of the cost of competitors. Q-Track’s customers include Fortune 500 companies that specialize in manufacturing, logistics, energy production, and defense.
Q-Track, NFER, and SafeSpot are either registered trademarks or trademarks of Q-Track Corporation.
