German term or phrase:Stapler
Die beiden am Heck eines Staplers installierten Ultraschall-Sensorcluster uberwachen den ganzen Rueckraum bei jeder Rueckwaertsfahrt ueber die gesamte Fahrzeugbreite.
fork-lift trucks and similar materials handling equipment
Explanation: Whilst some of the other, more precise answers are not wrong in themselves, I find that Stapler is also used in an almost generic sense to cover a whole range of material handling equipment. The tool you outline is used in all of these.
