DAY 3

Prevent accidents at intersections

Early awareness, audible alerts and 360-degree proximity detection make CAS invaluable to drivers approaching intersections that feature blind spots.

DAY 1

Traffic Awareness: 
See what you're missing

The 360-degree proximity detection offered by Hexagon's MineProtect Collision Avoidance System is trusted by mines to eliminate blind spots and protect the operators of more than 40,000 vehicles worldwide. 

Combat fatigue and distraction

Fatigue and distraction are leading causes of mining accidents. Operator Alertness System is an integrated fatigue / distraction alerting, detection and reporting solution. Masks and glasses are no obstacle to the infrared sensor, which analyzes operators in real time combined with 24/7 remote monitoring.  

DAY 4

DAY 5

Alert and empower pedestrians to act

Small but mighty, Hexagon’s Personal Alert is an ergonomic wearable device that issues visual, audible and vibratory alerts depending on the risk posed to pedestrians and maintenance personnel during interaction with heavy machinery. See how drivers and pedestrians inside work zones are alerted to each other’s presence. 

Forewarn of unstable slopes and no-go zones

Miners and equipment are protected from injury-threatening events by being forewarned of no-go-zones by Hexagon’s MineProtect Collision Avoidance System – now integrated with IDS GeoRadar! Mines receive real-time equipment visualization with timely alerts about hazardous areas for people and machinery. 

DAY 6

DAY 7

Eliminate risk on corners

Collision Avoidance System eliminates blind spots and prevents accidents on corners by notifying drivers of collision risks early. 

Analytics and visualization

Look inside a control room equipped with safety analytics and powerful data visualization to help you understand the story behind near-miss events and incident investigation. See risk hot spots and interactive heat maps so you can respond to change risky behaviors.  

DAY 8

DAY 9

Remove risk from parking lots

Sight lines are compromised in parking lots and work bays, heightening the risk of accidents, so Hexagon’s Collision Avoidance System provides visual awareness of approaching vehicles, eliminating blind spots.  

360° awareness at intersections

The 360-degree proximity detection offered by Hexagon’s Collision Avoidance System is trusted by mines worldwide to protect drivers approaching intersections featuring blind spots while minimizing nuisance alarms.  

DAY 10

DAY 11

Staying safe downhill

By automatically detecting ramps and adjusting speed limits based on slope percentage, Hexagon’s MineProtect Collision Avoidance System ensures drivers react and maintain correct speed via visual and audible notifications. Ramp speed control minimizes the risk of accidents and reduces tire wear from excessive braking.

Vehicle intervention: Your first & last resort 

Watch mining’s first vehicle intervention system (VIS) in action! MineProtect VIS detects and prevents collisions by automatically slowing down or stopping a haul truck if an imminent collision is detected. 

DAY 12

No need for speed

Automatically adjust speed limits by area and provide awareness to vehicles in overtaking situations. CAS ensures drivers see blind spots, obey traffic rules and avoid accidents.  

DAY 2
