Our Safety Features

24/7/360°Awareness to Keep Your People Safe

Each year, the manufacturing industry experiences hundreds of deaths and thousands of nonfatal injuries. Forklifts are particularly dangerous with more than 90,000 injuries in the US alone. Each incident comes with safety inspections, expensive workers’ compensation claims — all with an average cost of $42,000 per accident.

Fortunately, all of our autonomous vehicles come equipped with redundant sensing and communication mechanisms to ensure greater safety. By taking manual and dangerous tasks off of your employees' hands, you can minimize injuries and keep your people safe.

“Safety continues to be an ongoing priority, which is reflected in the highly technical and rigorously engineered design of our autonomous technology stack.”

By deploying Cyngn’s autonomous vehicles, your organization can elevate its safety standards to new heights, breaking the cycle of costly incidents to create a safer, more positive, and productive work environment.


A Complete Safety Suite


Sees the Complete Picture

LiDARs bring complete 360° vision to the vehicle by continuously monitoring the surrounding area for obstacles and obstructions.

The LiDARs we use on our vehicles can see up to 30 meters and do a full scan 10 times per second. Each scan generates a rich 3D rendering, made up of 32,000 individual data points, giving our system the information it needs to make instant decisions about its surroundings.

This alone would be enough but we couple this visibility with additional sensors to give your organization full confidence in safe and efficient navigation that will keep your workers out of harm's way. 


Makes Decisions Instantly

Our Decision Engine interprets what our LiDARs see to make decisions 3x faster than a Human Driver.

By evaluating the surrounding area and data coming from the LiDAR, IMU, wheel encoders, and other sensors, our vehicles can determine if it’s safe to navigate. The system considers people in the environment and their hundreds of different predicted paths to quickly decide to stop or keep driving.

Through accurate assessment of threats and proactive anticipation of movements, the vehicle can achieve safe motion and avoid potential collisions — damn near instantly.


Stops on a Dime 

Our collision avoidance system, Virtual Bumper, is a redundant sensor and compute package that offers an extra layer of safety by essentially doubling the number of systems responsible for safety.

Utilizing a network of in-vehicle sensors, our Virtual Bumper extends in front of the vehicle and automatically stops it to prevent collisions.

By dynamically adapting its protective field according to the vehicle's speed, which can extend up to 3.5m, your operations can continue to run smoothly without the risk of costly accidents.

By the way, Virtual Bumper's permitters can be adjusted based on the layout of your facility.


Safety You Can See and Hear

Communication Lights

We use color-coded LED lighting to communicate the DriveMod vehicle's status and intent to the workers in the area.

These clear visual cues make it easier for your workers to understand how the vehicle is operating and avoid misunderstandings or delays in communication. Since humans can process visual content 50x faster than words, we find the lighting system to be an effective means to ensure a quicker response than a notification in the FMS.

Audio Cues

Audible tones and automated horn honks help notify your employees when a vehicle is turning, departing, or arriving at a stop. These sound cues serve as an added safety measure for your team, especially in situations where the vehicle is not visible. 


Safety is More Than Just Preventing Injuries

Protect Workers from Physical Stress

Warehouse workers often deal with the physical strain imposed by manually operating industrial vehicles. 

Whether it's the repetitive action of getting on and off a vehicle, prolonged sitting, or vehicle vibrations, these seemingly routine tasks can lead to an increase in work-related injuries and health issues.

Build a Happier Workforce

The awareness of potential hazards and the fear of accidents can lead to heightened stress, anxiety, and even burnout.

This emotional strain can impact the happiness and job satisfaction of your workforce, leading to a ripple effect on productivity and retention rates. In fact, 50% of leaders across the logistics industry struggle with employee retention. 

Luckily, DriveMod vehicles enable your workers to focus on safer and more valuable jobs. With a safer environment and happier workers, you will be able to get more done and improve employee retention. 


Cyngn Autonomy in Action

"The bottom line is DriveMod has made us more productive. Instead of manually moving goods through the warehouse, our team can stay focused on picking, packing, and other high-value assignments."
