Taking Radar-Based Object Detection a Big Step Further

By Dale Hessing on March 23, 2017

Normally, PRECO customers use our technology to warn heavy equipment operators of impending danger; an obstacle, a pedestrian, another vehicle. Occasionally, some companies come to us with a completely different set of requirements in mind, such as UK-based Equipe Geosolutions.

Equipe Geosolutions develops new technologies for the global drilling industry. Among its products are portable drilling rigs used by the construction industry to probe the subsoil on which new buildings will be built.

Sensor Technologies Combine Forces to Create the Ultimate Backing Safety Solution

By Doug Whitfield on May 19, 2016

 By May 2018, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) will require rear visibility technology in all new vehicles under 10,000 pounds, including buses and over the road trucks. This field of view must include a 10-foot by 20-foot zone directly behind the vehicle. Let’s take a look at what prompted this forward thinking change in safety regulation.

Once an accident has occurred, you can’t go back. The simple act of backing up a vehicle can turn tragic in a matter of seconds. But these common accidents can be avoided by utilizing a combination of safety technologies available today.

Best Practices for Avoiding Worksite Accidents

By Dale Hessing on September 9, 2015

"Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are."

A good friend of mine shared this famous John Wooden quote on the first day of school for his two teen-age girls. How does this apply to PRECO and more specifically to the safety industry? Character is what is represented in every product that is developed and shipped out of PRECO’s door to help companies save lives and improve the worksite. At PRECO Electronics, a company that boasts an average employee tenure of almost 18 years, the effect of employee character is exemplified by PRECO’s willingness to challenge the status quo and push the industry to reevaluate technology and apply best practices that in turn saves lives.
