Innovative Product Award Honorable Mention – JLG SkySense

Product: SkySense

Manufacturer: JLG

Key Innovation: SkySense uses strategically placed object detection sensors and innovative ultrasonic technology to heighten equipment operators’ awareness of the immediate surroundings. When operators are using the machine, sensors establish warning zones and create stop distances dependent on the machine’s direction. 

Manufacturer's Description:

SkySense uses strategically placed object detection sensors and innovative ultrasonic technology to heighten equipment operators’ awareness of the immediate surroundings. When operators are using the machine, sensors establish warning zones and create stop distances dependent on the machine’s direction.

Visual and audio alerts let operators know when the lift is approaching an object. As it approaches, sensors will automatically direct the machine to slow down and then stop. Users have the option to override the system and inch closer to the adjacent structure when required to complete the work at height.

This new technology delivers a more confident work environment for a variety of industries. From aviation to petrochemical plants, SkySense greatly improves an operator’s experience on the job site.
