Protecting shovel and bucket excavators
It can be challenging for vehicle operators to give their full attention during loading operations when surrounded by other moving dump trucks or graders, especially when driving space is limited due to embankments. The MINESIC is a high-precision object detection system that monitors the area around the excavator. It guides the dump truck operator safely to the correct loading position. The operating display indicates all obstacles within the relevant warning field. If a collision is imminent, the operator will be warned by an audible alarm so that the current maneuver can be safely stopped in a timely manner.
