Application Solution of Forklift Driver Face Recognition and Permission Collector Based on FET3568J-C SoM

Forklift is an indispensable equipment in modern industrial production and logistics transportation, but at the same time, it is also a mechanical equipment with certain risks. If operated improperly or managed poorly, it can easily lead to safety accidents, causing injuries and property losses. Therefore, improving the safety awareness and management level of forklift drivers is of great significance in ensuring the safety and smooth operation of enterprise production and logistics transportation.

In the safety protection and protective devices, it is stated that forklifts must be equipped with a driver authorization information collector. This collector is used to bind the driver's personal identity information with biometric information such as fingerprints, iris, facial features, or magnetic cards. The forklift can only be started after the driver's permission is verified.

The forklift facial recognition driver authorization collector is primarily used for driver permission management. With high-precision cameras and facial recognition algorithms, this system can accurately identify and determine the driver’s identity information. It helps ensure that only authorized individuals can operate the forklift, improving safety and security in the workplace.

Only drivers who have undergone professional training and obtained authorization will have their information entered into the system and be granted permission to operate the forklift. Once the system detects an unauthorized person attempting to operate the forklift, it immediately triggers an alarm and takes measures to prevent the forklift from starting, ensuring the safety of operations.

The forklift facial recognition driver authorization collector has the following notable features:

  • Facial recognition: By using cameras to capture facial information, it can accurately identify the facial features of drivers in a short period of time with high precision, without the need for manual intervention, greatly improving management efficiency.
  • Security: The system is designed with high security in mind. It effectively prevents others from impersonating drivers and provides dual protection for forklift operations.
  • Integration: The system can not only operate independently but also seamlessly integrate with other security devices, access control systems, etc., forming a comprehensive security management system to further enhance safety.
  • Scalability: The system supports the integration of finger print recognition and card recognition systems, allowing for the expansion of corresponding functions based on specific needs.
