Protect your workers and improve visibility
Increase safety and optimize underground mining operation productivity
Proximity Detection System
With the OptiMine Proximity Detection System operators can now be aware of hazards in their blind spots or beyond their line of sight around corners
System is simple to use
Pedestrians working in the equipment operators' blind spots or beyond the line of sight around corners are at risk of being injured.
With OptiMine Proximity Detection System, the operator approaching these workers will receive advanced notice of their presence and can take appropriate actions such as slowing down the vehicle or coming to a complete stop.
Vehicles parked in the active areas of the mine can also be at risk.
With the OptiMine PDS, operators receive advanced warning of these vehicles before they become visible.
Detection of a Fixed Hazard
Fixed hazards may not be easily visible to LHD or Truck Operators. By attaching a Fixed Hazard Beacon to a barricade, the operator will receive a notification as he approaches the fixed hazard.
A Pedestrian afraid of being hit or witnessing a dangerous situation can push the emergency bottom of their cap-lamp to send an emergency stop signal to the operators in range.
If a worker falls unconscious, the system will detect their lack of movement and automatically send a fallen worker signal to all operators in range.
Advanced Proximity Detection
OptiMine Advanced Proximity Detection (L8) is the second step towards Collision Avoidance (L9), with more detailed situational awareness and fewer nuisance alarms
Collision Avoidance System
OptiMine Collision Avoidance (L9) adds a Vehicle Intervention Controller (VIC) for automated slow-to-stop control of the vehicle as an additional safety net if the operator fails to slow down or break in a timely fashion based on Collision Warning (L8) advisory warnings.
