Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas made the All-Around View Monitoring (AAVM) system available on factory orders of the HL900 series wheel loaders.

The new system is being shown publicly for the first time at the 2018 World of Concrete Show in Las Vegas on a Hyundai HL955 wheel loader, the company reports.

Equipped with four cameras – including one each mounted on the left- and right-side mirrors, one on the front of the cab, and the standard backup camera mounted to the rear hood – the monitoring system provides a 360-degree-surround virtual operating view of the jobsite.

“Safety on the jobsite is a necessity,” says Corey Rogers, marketing manager for Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas. “Now with the new wheel loader AAVM system on our HL900 series, Hyundai provides owners and operators a safer solution than other options on the market.”

The AAVM includes Intelligent Moving Object Detection (IMOD) capability to warn the operator of the presence of any object or person within a 22.9-ft radius of the machine. Photo courtesy of Hyundai Construction Equipment.

The company says the AAVM systems includes the IMOD (Intelligent Moving Object Detection) system that senses and warns operators with onscreen flashing arrows and an alarm when objects come within either of two selectable ranges – 6.5 feet/2 m or 22.9 feet/7 m – of the wheel loader. The image is integrated into the Hyundai seven-inch color touchscreen cluster-monitor in the cab.

The AAVM system uses Hyundai’s proprietary imaging software to display multiple 3-D and 2-D views of the operator’s working environment, including a bird’s-eye view.

“Exclusive features like AAVM and a long list of standard features are combined on the Hyundai HL900 series wheel loaders to give our customers what we call ‘the Hyundai edge’ – performance, convenience, serviceability and, of course, safety,” Rogers says. “The Hyundai edge is the result of innovation, world-class engineering and manufacturing, and components and systems sourced from trusted global suppliers.”
