Doosan Bobcat North America has partnered with Ainstein AI - a radar technologies company headquartered in Lawrence, Kansas - to develop radar sensor systems for Bobcat equipment.

Through this partnership, Ainstein and Doosan Bobcat North America will collaborate to create radar-based sensing solutions to detect objects on jobsites.

"This strategic partnership leverages the respective strengths of Bobcat and Ainstein to further advance our connected and autonomous technology," said Joel Honeyman, vice president of global innovation at Doosan Bobcat North America. "Working together, we can evolve autonomous operations and provide our customers with optimal productivity and the ultimate operator experience through sensor technology."

Doosan Bobcat North America and Ainstein will collaborate to create radar sensor solutions to detect objects on jobsites when using Bobcat equipment. The radar system developed by Ainstein collects object position data — like range, azimuth, elevation and doppler information — to provide real-time alerts to operators by incorporating a combination of mmWave radar, sensor fusion and artificial intelligence. This technology will enable obstacle avoidance solutions and future technologies that support autonomous operations.

Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
