SATS SICC2 Singapore

ASS Pte Ltd have installed a trial ZoneSafe gobo Projector System at the SATS SICC2 facility in Singapore. The system has been located at a busy traffic junction adjacent the main storage warehouse entrance/exit.

The equipment has been located to provide an image onto the floor when a vehicle approaches from any of 3 directions.

Each vehicle (stacker and pallet trucks) driver is equipped with a ZoneSafe Tag. When the vehicle/Tag enters the safety zone, the gobo Projector will project an image onto the floor to warn pedestrians that a vehicle is in the vicinity.

SATS will trial the system with a view to installing additional systems at other key locations within the facility.

ASS Pte Ltd have completed the installation of 4 No. ZoneSafe gobo Projector Systems at the Givauden facility in Singapore. Givauden identified the safety aspects/advantages of installing gobo systems at 4 No. key ‘blind’ junctions within the facility. The ZoneSafe gobo Systems each comprise a gobo Projector Device, a ZoneSafe Discovery Unit, and a local Junction Box to harness the equipment, and to provide adequate power supplies.

Each Industrial Vehicle driver carries a ZoneSafe rechargeable RFID Tag. When an industrial vehicle approaches a ‘blind’ junction, the driver’s Tag is detected by the ZoneSafe Discovery Unit. This in turn, activates the gobo Projector which projects an image onto the factory floor.

The image provides personnel, and other vehicle drivers, with a clear understanding that a vehicle is in the near vicinity, and to take caution.

Once a vehicle leaves the safety zone, the gobo image will be switched off.

Givauden have also invested in several rechargeable RFID Tags together with Qi Wireless Charging Devices, and a ZoneSafe Tag Tester Device. The Tag Tester Device allows users to check the battery status of their Tags before entering the workplace.

Further to introducing ZoneSafe Systems to their facilities in Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam and India, the DSM Nutrition group of companies, have placed an order with ASS Pte Ltd for systems to be implemented at the DSM Nutrition facility in the Philippines.

The Vehicle to Person (V2P), and Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) Systems, will be self- installed by the DSM Nutrition technical team, with remote assistance from the ASS Pte Ltd technical team based in Singapore.

ASS Pte Ltd have spent some considerable time redesigning the ways in which the ZoneSafe equipment can be mounted to different vehicles with minimal fuss. The equipment can be mounted using a variety of clamps, which eliminates the requirement for permanent fixing to the vehicles structure. This strategy protects the integrity of the vehicle structure.

ASS Pte Ltd have produced a series of ‘Self Install’ Manuals and Documents to assist the installation teams.

DSM Nutrition are a Swiss company with a global footprint, and have recognised the benefits that ZoneSafe provides for the safety of their workers.


Samwoh have become one of ASS Pte Ltd key clients for the implementation of ZoneSafe Systems. Further to installing several Vehicle to Person detection systems to various Excavators, Samwoh requested ASS to relocate some of the ZoneSafe equipment from the existing vehicles to others.

The standard equipment that ASS use to attach and cable ZoneSafe Systems to vehicles means that the transition from one vehicle to another is a straightforward task. Apart from minor parts replacement (damaged/worn parts), the task to relocate systems only involves labour resources.

This a prime example of how flexible ZoneSafe Systems are.

Further to completing the initial implementation of Conveyor Systems and a Warehouse Management System at the Oman Air In-Flight catering Centre, located at the Muscat International Airport, Oman, Galfar Engineering & Contracting SAOG, have awarded Automation Support Services Pte Ltd with a contract to provide remote support for the systems.
