Lacking or inadequate situation awareness has been identified as one of the primary factors in industrial accidents attributed to human error. Thus, situational awareness is especially important in work domains where the information flow can be high and poor decisions will lead to serious consequences. Netarus, founded in 2002, engineers and manufactures situational awareness platforms for some of the most demanding environments and locations. In the February 2017 edition of the Showcase Webinar Series – Situational Awareness: Mobile Cranes, Tower Cranes, Overhead Cranes, and You – Chris Machut, founder and chief technology officer of Netarus, will share the positive, negative, and unintended consequences of using visual aid technologies for mobile, tower, and overhead cranes. Machut, a graduate of Virginia Tech, is an experienced computer engineer and business developer.
