SAFEmine are to present ‘Assessing the Effectiveness of Collision Avoidance’ technology at the Collision Avoidance in Mining conference in Brisbane, QLD, Australia from March 8th to 9th.

As part of SAFEmine’s attendance at this year’s Collision Avoidance in Mining conference in Brisbane, Australia, Urs Rothacher, CEO of SAFEmine, will be giving a talk on how traffic awareness technology can improve
operator performance on vehicles in surface mines.

Using a before/after approach in a study done in multiple mines, significant
improvement of vehicle operators’ behavior – the key to traffic safety – was
shown through the use of a suited Collision Avoidance System. Beyond this,
mines’ benefits from a Collision Avoidance System like SAFEmine include
important information on hot spots on their road network and improvements of
overall traffic related key parameters.

After providing an overview of
challenges and lessons learnt in deploying and supporting thousands of
collision avoidance devices in many open pit mines worldwide, Urs will look
into future developments to explore likely benefits of this technology in
years to come.

This talk will be taking place on Tuesday, 8 March, starting at 2pm.
