Collision Avoidance

Protection of mine site equipment, infrastructure, and personnel is a major requirement on mine sites and presents great demands on collision awareness solutions. The avoidance of mine site accidents demands a combination of technologies to assist operators and reduce risk. Collision awareness and assistance technology must be able to also warn of these risks.
