Without a solution in place:
Marina truck operators maneuver boats in and out of racking with only a view from underneath.
Even with operators’ best efforts, damage to boats occurs regularly, costing thousands of dollars and upsetting customers.
Large forklifts have very poor rear visibility immediately behind the truck. In tight storage buildings, operators can back into boat motors and storage racking.
Operators have poor ergonomics from twisting their bodies to see behind them when maneuvering, potentially resulting in injury.
Using an HVS camera system:
The operator can see the top of the boat and clearance to rack beams, fire sprinkler heads, and boats above.
A camera mounted at the bottom of the fork carriage allows the operator to place his fork tips underneath the boat hull more accurately.
HVS monitors can be programmed to display a front-facing camera to help with fork placement by default, then automatically switch to display the image from a backup camera when the truck is shifted into reverse gear.
Product damage and safety incidents decrease.
