5 Driver Training Keep out zones BodyGuard™ No single solution solves all safety issues (BodyGuard™ NOT Cure-all) Safety philosophy based on well know “Swiss Cheese” or “Onion Model” Overall safety improved by adding “layers” of risk reduction BodyGuard™ x% y% z% Total % Risk Reduction Adds a Layer to your existing safety system

6 BodyGuard™ Lowers risk of collision in many ways Person to Vehicle Person to Machine Vehicle to Vehicle Vehicle to work area or zone Area access control and boom gates Slow vehicle speed Stop movement of machine

7 BodyGuard™ Best choice of technology available Orbit considered the main technologies available All available technologies found to have limitations  Camera systems  Infra red  Ultrasonic  Microwave  Radar  GPS  Laser  RFID  Wireless  Distracts Driver, constant cleaning  Affected by heat  Affected by noise from machinery  False alarms from objects  No-go indoors, needs infrastructure  Reliant on reflective surface  Short range, not fully evaluated  Reflections on metal surfaces Wireless technology showed least limitations Orbit already has significant experience with wireless

8 BodyGuard™ Least limitations – Most advantages Operates in smoke, dust, rain Not distract driver from normal operations No ongoing cleaning or adjustments Indoor and outdoor use System uses real-time data – ID, groups of Types etc No False alarms from objects not fitted with BodyGuard™ Safety zones are individually adjustable

9 BodyGuard™ System Components Light Vehicle Unit  Fitted to Vehicle or Machinery  Provides Audible/Visual Alarm.  Transmits and Receives  IP67  12V/24V DC operation Personal TAG unit  Worn by personnel  Built-in Batteries  Charges in 3 hours  Up to 2 weeks per charge  Transmits signal ONLY (no local alarm)

10 Fixed Unit  Located in common work/safe zone  Ideal for access way, packing areas  Controls strobe light and/or siren  Powered by 230VAC  Transmits and Receives BodyGuard™ System Components continued TAG Smart Charger Unit  TAG drops into charging cradle  Quick charge (3 hours)  Trickle charge keeps TAG topped up

11 BodyGuard™ sets up invisible safety zone around the object. BodyGuard™ How it works The Safety-Zone is adjustable from 1m 1m 100m Safety Zone. TAG Unit BodyGuard™ Device can be fitted to Vehicle, Machinery or Person to 100m BodyGuard™ Programmable outputs control equipment

BodyGuard™ Proactive Risk Reduction DATETIME TYPE 27/09/10 ID 10:15: TAG STATUS ENTER562 LEVEL History Record History Records can be downloaded from any unit (Except TAGs). Last 2000 “near-miss” events stored in Log Higher number “near miss” events indicate trouble spots Make changes to work flow and compare for reduction in risk

17 BodyGuard™ Limitations of Wireless Technology Ideal case – Open ground, no metal reflections Ideal safety zone shape Irregular Shape Safety Zone Practical case – Vehicle and Environmental effects Increasing Zone compensates Original zone covered

18 Lowers risk of collision Provides instant alert for operators Pro-Active tool for managing risk No distraction of driver during normal use Adds another layer of protection in safety system Operates in most industrial working environments Bodyguard can be installed in any place where you want lower risk of collision.
