ACTIVE AND PASSIVE SAFETY
SIS systems are designed to prevent accidents in areas where industrial vehicles operate thus avoiding damage to people, structures, goods and machinery.
SIS systems can be deployed with two different types of safety levels i.e active safety and passive safety.

Poor visibility, distraction while driving and maneuvering, workers and vehicles presence, critical layout seriously affect the environment where lift trucks operate, our systems warn lift truck operators of imminent dangers of collision by offering a chance to slow down and prevent the movement of the lift truck.
