Whenever people need to work around big mining equipment, keeping them safe is your top priority. Detect enhances operator awareness of the immediate environment around their manned or remotely controlled equipment, whether it is a mobile machine or fixed equipment such as an underground longwall system.
With multiple capability packages covering everything from cameras and sensors in the cab to personnel detection underground, Detect offers a solution that improves visibility and safety in nearly any application.
Vision for surface equipment offers multiple camera capabilities, allowing operators to see what is happening close to their machines. In underground longwall applications, cameras are able to identify people and can follow them as they move along the working face. Built-in intelligence capabilities enable the operator to create a continuous view of tracked personnel.
Object Detection adds radar capabilities to mobile surface equipment. It automatically detects other equipment or vehicles within critical zones around the machine, and can highlight specific views to show the operator where potential hazards are located.
Proximity Awareness adds Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) capabilities for surface operations. It allows Detect to display the locations of other equipment and assets beyond the reach of its radars, and allows preprogrammed information—such as avoidance zones, haul road maps and more—to be displayed in the cab.
Personnel uses locator tags to track the location and identity of personnel working on underground longwall equipment. It can automatically halt operations when unauthorized people enter restricted areas, while allowing service and maintenance personnel to work as required around operating equipment.
