Protecting trucks

The size, height, and speed of trucks combined with continuously changing operating conditions often make for very poor visibility for drivers. Front-end and rear-end collisions and leaving the road unintentionally are not uncommon occurrences in a mine. The MINESIC is a high-precision collision awareness system that monitors critical zones surrounding a vehicle and also takes the current driving situation into account. A road departure warning provides guidance to the truck operator along the haul road and outputs a warning if the truck is about to leave the safe driving path.
