Doosan Infracore has launched the industry’s first “transparent bucket” system for wheeled loaders. According to The Construction Index, Doosan uses cameras to relay images into the bucket, eliminating a hazardous blind spot. The system records images in front of a wheeled loader with top and bottom front-loaded cameras. It shows the combined images on the cab monitor in real time using a curved projection method.
Doosan also suggests that there may be productivity benefits as well as safety benefits, if the driver can see what he or she is loading or unloading. Doosan also has an around view monitor (AVM) system, relying 360-degree images around the machine and a rear warning system using ultrasonic sensors, according to the report.
