Doosan’s ‘Transparent Bucket’ system has won two major awards at the international Matexpo Exhibition held in Belgium recently.

The novel system, which effectively enables operators to see through the bucket by way of two cameras mounted on the top and bottom of the machine, won in both the ‘Innovation’ and ‘Safety’ categories, scooping two of the three awards organised by Matexpo and decided by an independent jury comprised of construction industry specialists

The area in front of machines is often a major concern in terms of safety. Using the transparent bucket function, however, drivers can easily check the blind spots in front of the bucket via the in-cab monitor. Another advantage is that it can significantly improve work efficiency by providing a forward-view perspective for the driver during loading/unloading or when carrying materials such as aggregates, sand and soil.
