Doosan Transparent Bucket

Dec. 8, 2021
Editor Rod Sutton perched safely alongside the cab of one of Doosan's wheel loaders to see how the company "transparent bucket" functions, as product specialist Bill Zak demonstrates the camera technology behind the safety tool. Two cameras are mounted on the front of the loader. One is on top of the cab, the other on the bottom of the loader in front of the differential. With the press of a button, an algorithm kicks in and merges the two video feeds to create a ghost image that show the operator what--or who--is hidden by the bucket.
