Protecting shovel and bucket excavators

Drivers loading and unloading their vehicles in close proximity of moving trucks and dozers and working in areas where space for moving and maneuvering is restricted by embankments must be highly aware of their surroundings. The MINESIC is a high-precision collision awareness system that monitors the area around a shovel. It guides truck operators safely to the correct loading position. The operator display shows all obstacles in the corresponding warning fields. If a collision is imminent, the operator will be warned by an audible alarm so that the current maneuver can be stopped safely and in good time.
