Proposal of the Detection System for Safety Equipment-Wearing Using IBC

Masaki Fujikawa and Masakatsu Nishigaki
Abstract— For operating machine tools, safety is an essential requirement. The electronics and information technologies enable us to build a safety device into gloves and helmets to stop machine tools when these safety equipments enter a dangerous area. In this detection system, it is important to prevent errors where the operator forgets or neglects wearing above equipments. According to our investigation, an adequate equipment-wearing detection system does not. In this paper, we propose an equipment-wearing detection system. The aim of this system is to stop a starter and motor/engine installed vehicles and machine tools when a person intends to operate them without wearing safety equipments. We also carried out experimental tests of a laboratory prototype of a system described above.

Index Terms— Application of intra-body communication (IBC) technology, industry, sensor systems, safety system.
