From the group of finalists, an expert jury will select the three nominees for the award in each of the five categories. The 15 nominated innovations will be officially announced by the organisers in early September 2022.

Doosan’s Transparent Bucket is said to allow the wheel loader driver to see blind spots in front of the bucket on the machine, using the monitor in the cab. The innovative system records images in front of the wheel loader with top and bottom front-loaded cameras and shows combined images on the cab monitor in real-time using a curved projection method.

Doosan Infracore says that they are the ‘first company in the world’ to develop and apply a front projection function with the Transparent Bucket for construction machines and have applied for patents in Korea, North America, Europe and China.

A Doosan spokesperson commented, “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.”
