Mine Blast Safety
Integrating systems for collision avoidance and radar-based slope stability hazards.
Hexagon’s integration of safety systems with radar-based slope stability hazards means workers are protected from injury-threatening events by being forewarned of no-go-zones. No-go zones are identified in software, which creates geofenced zones and hazard maps, and is correlated with radar alarms.
Protect and prevent
Keeping everyone and everything safe from potential catastrophic slope stability failure is a major preoccupation for safety supervisors.
Safety, sustainability and efficiency can suffer at any mine where the data from planning, operations, safety and business analytics is siloed.
Hexagon's technology allows you to share these important data sources in one platform. It means mines can now receive real-time equipment visualisation with timely alerts about hazardous areas for people and machinery.
Workers and equipment are protected from injury-threatening events by being forewarned of no-go-zones.
No-go zones are identified by software, which creates geofenced zones and hazard maps, and is correlated with radar alarms. These alarms are automatically triggered when a no-go zone is approached.
The additional layer of information created by this integration means better risk evaluation and is one more way to ensure everyone gets home safely.
We’re climbing the automation curve
Our transition to Intelligent automation is accelerating. Ultimately, our innovations will give rise to new technologies and applications - many of which we’ve yet to imagine. Today, every Hexagon solution is mapped and tagged according to its level of automation, so customers can clearly track our progress towards the freedom of autonomy.
Human performs all tasks, no data being used
Human is in charge of performing tasks but certain functions are automated to simplify control
Some tasks are automated so that operation can be autonomous for short periods (or within specific circumstances)
Autonomous operation is possible within certain bounds, but human intervention may be necessary at short notice
Designed to complete required tasks autonomously, but may require human intervention if circumstances change beyond specific bounds
Control tasks automated under all conditions, but human may request to take over; can complete all expected tasks without human intervention
