US-based inthinc Technology has introduced a new technology that can help mining companies receive real-time tracking and instant alerts for vehicles operating in open pit mining blast zones.

inthinc CEO Todd Follmer said blastZone increases the safety level at mining sites by giving companies real-time vehicle positioning and real-time warnings for drivers regarding the time and location of a planned detonation.

blastZone comes as part of the inthinc waySmart fleet safety system.
