General Motors Port Melbourne Plant needed a total safety solution for its plant and on-site fleet, including forklifts and Taylor Dunn buggies.


General Motors' management recognized that safety needed to improve at its Port Melbourne Plant. It also recognized the role that Industrial IoT technology could play in achieving this, so it turned to Speedshield Technologies for a comprehensive, integrated solution.


The Speedshield Industrial Safety System was fitted to all forklifts and Taylor Dunn buggies. Working seamlessly with the RFID and GPS Zoned Speed Control, the system increased the site's safety.


The Speedshield Reporting & Control module allowed management to centrally set/alter the active speed limits in any of the 40+ sections of the Engine Operations Plant. This gave the company the ability to set a traffic management plan and ensure it was followed.
