Safety Truck’s applications are simulations of real
industrial lines and set the minimum requirements for the safety of the
industrial environment, as well as of the users of individual machines.
examples of machine-related hazards were given, where, through Siemens
solutions, the required levels of reliability for user’s safety were set. The
process of implementing security applications, from the risk assessment phase
to the selection of the appropriate materials, as well as the architecture and set-to-operation
