Doosan launches new transparent bucket system
In other machinery-related news, Doosan has launched what it believes is “the industry’s first” wheel loader ‘transparent bucket’ system.
The system allows the wheel loader driver to see blind spots in front of the bucket on the machine, using the monitor in the cab.
The system records images in front of the wheel loader with top and bottom front-loaded camera. It shows combined images on the cab monitor in real-time using a curved projection method.
Owing to blind spots caused by the buckets on wheel loaders, the area in front of the machines has been considered an area of major concern in terms of safety.
Furthermore, the driver can easily check the blind spots in front of the bucket via the cab monitor, to increase safety and prevent accidents.
The system can significantly improve work efficiency by providing a forward-view perspective for the driver during loading/unloading or when carrying materials such as aggregates, and soil.
Doosan Infracore claims that it is the first company in the world to develop and apply a front projection function with the transparent bucket for construction machines and has applied for patents in Korea, North America, Europe, and China.
