Yale boosts belt safety
Surrey, United Kingdom

Yale has introduced a new 'cheat-proof' interlock system, SmartBelt, to prevent drivers from bypassing seat belt procedures.
The Yale SmartBelt allows the truck to travel only if the driver sits on the seat and then fastens the belt - in that order.
A flashing indicator on the truck's display panel reminds the operator to use the seat belt and gives a warning if it is unfastened later. The truck will not operate while the display panel seat belt indicator is flashing. When the control module receives a signal that the driver has been seated and the belt has been fastened in the correct sequence, it allows the truck to start and to travel.
The new system is available as an option on all 1.5 to 5.0 T Veracitor VX and electric counterbalance trucks.

QuickPick Remote wins award
New Bremen, OH, United States

Crown Equipment Corporation has picked up a Bronze International Design Excellence Award (IDEA) from the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) for its QuickPick Remote order picking system.
Crown's QuickPick Remote uses semi-automated truck navigation technologies to reduce low-level order picking walk steps, thereby increasing productivity, reducing operator fatigue and improving safety. It cuts "truck on/off" work motions by up to 70%, reducing fatigue and improving the operator experience.
QuickPick Remote allows operators to maintain consistent rhythm and pace, making the most of every second in the fast-paced picking process.
