Doosan transparent bucket wins at Matexpo

By Belinda Smart13 September 2021

Doosan Infracore Europe’s wheel loader ‘transparent bucket’ has taken out two awards at the international Matexpo Exhibition in Belgium from 8-12 September 2021.

The Doosan Transparent Bucket system won in the ‘Innovation’ and ‘Safety’ categories, which had 22 entries and 12 entries respectively, with Matexpo’s other award category, the Green Award, attracting 17 entries.

The Doosan Transparent Bucket records images at the front of the wheel loader with two cameras mounted on the top and bottom of the machine and displays them in real time on the monitor inside the cab.

This allows the wheel loader operator to see the objects in the ‘blind spots’ caused by the bucket.

It is also said to 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.

Parent company Doosan Infracore has applied for patents for the system in Korea, North America, Europe and China.

The ‘transparent bucket’ is one of a number of safety systems for Doosan machinery, including an around view monitor (AVM) system, that can observe machines’ surroundings, and a rear warning system.

A Doosan Infracore spokesperson said, “As machinery and site safety standards continue to be significantly raised around the world, advanced safety systems have become a key factor in selecting equipment.

“We plan to continue developing safety features that can protect drivers and other workers on site, and we aim to be at the forefront in creating construction sites that are safer and accident-free.”
