Predictive Braking

  • Slows down vehicles to avoid collisions
  • Maintains functionality in all-weather conditions.
  • Uses reliable sensor technology tested and proven in the automotive sector
  • New 77GHz automotive technology means 3x better object separation and 5x better distance accuracy than 24GHz.
  • Customizable and configurable to specific mine needs

Adaptive Cruise Control

  • Mining equivalent of adaptive cruise control used in the automotive sector
  • Ensures vehicles slow down and speed up according to the vehicle or object in front of them, gaining fuel economy and increasing cycle times while reducing the danger of a collision
  • New 77GHz automotive technology means 3x better object separation and 5x better distance accuracy than 24GHz.
  • Customizable and configurable to specific mine needs

The Challenge

  • Human error is the #1 cause of incidents in mining
  • Over-speeding increases the risk of collisions and injury
  • Under-speeding increases cycle time and cuts into productivity
  • Variation in speed and braking is hard on the engine and tires, increasing machine maintenance costs
  • Current mining technology is not safe-enough, reliable-enough, or secure-enough for life-critical vehicle applications
The missing piece of the puzzel
