Intelligent Safety System for Robotic and Remote Equipment

Client – Humanistic Robotics Inc

Ripple Design partnered with Humanistic Robotics to design SafetySense™, an overarching design strategy that can be built into new and existing products to reduce accidents in situations where users are working in close proximity to mobile systems. SafetySense™ provides automatic intervention to prevent unsafe conditions before they develop. It incorporates detection of unsafe conditions, system behavior monitoring, and a wireless manual stop capability. The integration of sensor readings with built in limits and system behavior modifications increases user safety by allowing a mobile system to react dynamically and alter its motion limits and responses.Ripple engineers were involved in the development of SafetySense™ from the earliest stages; our engineers worked side by side with Humanistic Robotics to produce several products based on the SafetySense™ system.
