Proximity Awareness in Surface Mining
Personnel Collision Avoidance
Surface mine personnel face the risk of serious injury from collisions with vehicles or heavy machinery on the mine site. These collisions can halt operations, incur high indirect costs and have consequences that affect every aspect of the business.
MST’s proximity awareness system uses electromagnetic near field technology to alert equipment operators and personnel when defined proximity zones are breached. The solution has a 360° field of detection, operates in dusty, muddy and no light environments, and can detect personnel around corners and behind structures. It is self-contained requiring no additional infrastructure and is not affected by existing technologies.
For over 25 years MST has developed safety, productivity and communication solutions, and a key factor of our success with Collision Avoidance Systems and their thorough adoption by personnel is our ability to integrate systems our solutions into existing infrastructure and equipment.
