Driver assistance systems

Your Benefits

  • Avoiding collisions and accidents reduces repair costs and downtimes
  • Efficient and seamless turning around, turning and reversing
  • Support and relief for the driver, for secure driving, positioning and loading of the vehicle
  • Recognition and identification of moving and static obstacles without the use of RFID transponders
  • Active situation-dependent warning with low false alarm rate
  • Configurable for the operational requirements in the mine site
  • Simple installation and operation thanks to the integrated installation assistant


The MINESIC system monitors the tailored safety distance between the vehicle and surrounding objects and machines, or to the walls in a tunnel. When turning and reversing, the driver is actively supported by visual and acoustic warnings against the danger of a possible collision. Thanks to the combination of robust sensors and the visualization of critical obstacles via a display, the driver is efficiently and securely led through the site. SICK offers multiple system variants designed for various types of vehicles for open and deep mining.
