Abstract
What We've Learned: 1. Multiple sensor technologies needed (performance overlap). 2. Application in stationary applications is not terribly difficult. 3. Tying sensor condition (on/off) to shut-off devices on new tractors is not difficult. 4. Sensor system developed and tested gives about 0.5 to 1.0 second to take action (shut off machine, warn, etc.) 5. You can buy more time by designing the sensor to "look" out a further distance from the hazard, but you dramatically increase false alarms.
