12 ways to improve mine safety
Safety’s too important for partial solutions. Learn how we’re connecting autonomous ecosystems to address risks, minimize nuisance alarms and get everyone home safely with HxGN MineProtect.
An integrated fatigue and distraction management solution, HxGN MineProtect Operator Alertness System helps operators of heavy and light vehicles to maintain the level of attention necessary for long hours and monotonous tasks.
The mining industry demands world-class operational performance, not only in productivity but for safety, too. This includes driver fatigue and distraction, which are known to cause accidents and near-misses. The danger increases for operators of heavy and light machinery combined with monotonous work over long hours.
HxGN MineProtect Operator Alertness System (OAS) is an integrated fatigue and distraction-detection, alerting, and reporting solution that helps operators maintain the level of attention necessary for long shifts.
Integrated with HxGN MineProtect Collision Avoidance System (CAS), OAS uses sophisticated computer vision technology to provide a real-time fatigue and distraction risk status and traffic awareness to operators via unobtrusive, operator-friendly displays.
OAS delivers reliable, audible and vibratory alerts of fatigue and distraction events to avert imminent accidents. It features a cloud platform to continuously assess in real time the fatigue risks of individual operators and the complete fleet, allowing intervention, if necessary.
In response to distraction, drowsiness and microsleeps, computer vision AI provides real-time notifications to operators inside the cab of haul trucks, auxiliary and medium-sized mobile equipment, as well as in light vehicles, buses and semi-trucks. This empowers them to act.
Remote monitoring centers provide an independent review of each alert before notifying the mine via email or text of any critical events for immediate action. This helps build a data-driven safety picture of your operators and the entire fleet.
The in-cab device is easy to install and works in both light and dark conditions, and with masks, prescription glasses and/or lenses. The OAS-LV device communicates and integrates seamlessly with the OAS Analytics server, enabling full heavy- and light-vehicle fleet monitoring.
