Safety Guidelines


Safety guidelines for the use for the development of autonomous vehicles

  1. Safety takes the highest priority and is the responsibility of everyone to ensure that no harm comes to people or property.
  2. The Hako tractor should not be operated in automatic steering mode unless two people are present. They are the operator and the safety officer.

  4. The role of the safety officer is only to ensure safe conditions and have no other responsibility. The safety officer will always be equpped with the wireless emergency stop switch.

Any competent person can be the Safety Officer.
