Mine Personnel and Equipment Safety
Protect people and equipment without compromising efficiency and results.
Securing miners’ safety amidst heavy traffic, large equipment and poor visibility is challenging. So is balancing the pressure for productivity with the need for safety. Hexagon believes solutions that put people first need not sacrifice efficiency and results.
Rock-solid safety solutions
The daily dangers miners face are too numerous and varied to be addressed by point solutions. Poor visibility, blind spots, fatigue, distraction and slope instability can only be mitigated by a comprehensive safety response combining technology and a commitment to zero-harm culture.
To take zero harm seriously, mining companies need an enterprise solution to transform safety data into actionable intelligence backed by a proven change management methodology to ensure a meaningful safety culture prevails.
Hexagon provides this response by integrating systems for collision avoidance, operator alertness, pedestrian protection, vehicle intervention and slope monitoring.
Our collision avoidance system, for example, is used in more than 40,000 vehicles and equipment and allows mines to receive real-time equipment visualisation with timely alerts about hazardous areas for people and machinery.
Hexagon’s enterprise analytics solution offers a window into all aspects of traffic management safety.
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
