Cat developed the Integrated Object Detection System because its research showed that 70 percent of haul-truck accidents at mining sites happen during machine startup and low-speed movement. For use on models 785, 789, 793 and 797, the system combines cameras, radar and alarms to alert the driver when an object is close to his truck, but outside his field of vision. A display screen inside the cab shows the detected object. Both audible and visual warnings occur, with three levels of alarms indicating the urgency/proximity.
