Q-Track Launches Unique Forklift Safety Technology
SafeSpot™ is a new wireless collision avoidance system.
(Huntsville, AL) January 14, 2015 — Q-Track Corporation (Q-Track) today launched an innovative forklift collision avoidance system, SafeSpot™. In the U.S., forklift accidents cost an estimated $3.7 billion per year and cause 20,000 serious injuries including 100 deaths. SafeSpotTM increases safety while ensuring OSHA compliance. SafeSpotTM addresses safety requirements for warehouses, manufacturing, and industrial facilities. According to Stephen Werner, President and CEO of Q-Track, “SafeSpotTM eliminates false positives and differentiates between people and forklifts. This eliminates the need for workers to wear tags.”
Q-Track’s Near-Field Electromagnetic Ranging (NFER®) Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) employ low-frequency, long-wavelength signals to achieve accurate location information in challenging wireless environments where forklifts operate. The nuclear industry, the military, and manufacturing centers also use NFER® technology.
Q-Track delivers practical, indoor location solutions that provide value to customers. The company invented NFER® technology and is the sole provider of this unique approach to indoor location. Q-Track’s products provide high accuracy at a fraction of the cost of competitors. Q-Track’s customers include Fortune 500 companies that specialize in manufacturing, logistics, energy production, and defense.
Q-Track, NFER, and SafeSpot are either registered trademarks or trademarks of Q-Track Corporation.
