OverWatch™

Introduction

OverWatch

The EQSS OverWatch™ is an innovative approach to secondary guarding for use with Scissor Lift EWPs. The system works on the premise of detecting the operator’s position and movements, with respect to the EWP direction of movement. OverWatch™ uses the latest LIDAR and Inertial Measurement technologies, coupled with a powerful Wi-Fi enabled processor running EQSS proprietary AI and advanced sensor fusion algorithms. The OverWatch™ is the first truly usable, robust, unobtrusive and cost-effective secondary guarding solution presented to the market to date for Scissor Lifts.
