Proximity Awareness


Timely, accurate communication is key to running a safe, productive mine, and the latest Cat® Proximity Awareness system helps make it a reality. It lets your machines—light vehicles and any brand of surface mining equipment—“talk” in real time, virtually eliminating time lag and false alarms to help prevent collisions. It captures every “conversation” so you can review trends, compare performance and identify areas for operator training. And because it’s a peer-to-peer system, there’s no sitewide network required. If you’re ready to take safety to new levels, let’s talk—machine to machine.
