Safety Enabling Technologies

More and more safety technologies are being developed and embedded into Caterpillar equipment every year. Some have become standard features and some are optional equipment. The following are some examples of optional equipment on many models today.

WAVS – Work area vision system : One or more cameras allow the operator enhanced visibility to their surroundings.


Object Detection systems : Use both cameras and radar technologies to enhance the operators awareness and aide in detection of objects within the surrounding area of the machine.


Product Link™: Captures operator induced event codes that may indicate unsafe operating techniques or unsafe site conditions. Product Link then transmits those codes to a secure site for viewing by customers and dealer Condition Monitoring analysts in the VisionLink™ software.
