Sep 22, 2015 Based on these background studies, the Intelligent Proximity Detection (iPD) system was designed to provide situational protection based on the position of a mine worker relative to the machine. The iPD system has been shown to accurately track the position of mine worker and disable potentially hazardous machine motions. What are the next steps?
With the global mining industry moving towards the legislated adoption of Proximity Detection Systems (PDS), they are becoming a critical control measure for improving safety in mobile mining equipment. PDS technology works to detect people and vehicles in the vicinity of an enabled vehicle and sounds an alarm for an impending hazard.
Aug 20, 2010 Recently, proximity detection systems have been emerging in the mining industry as a useful tool to predict and prevent collisions between one piece of mobile equipment and another, or between a piece of mobile equipment and a person. Manufacturers have developed several types of systems using various technologies for this purpose.
HazardAvert is an Electromagnetic (EM) detection, warning and interlocking system for proximity detection and collision avoidance in mining and construction.

Nov 18, 2019 A worker wearing a proximity sensor can be notified if a piece of heavy equipment is approaching him. Likewise, smart vehicles can monitor workers in their vicinity [Narla 2013].
MSHA and the mining industry have worked together to develop potentially life-saving technology that can stop machine motion and/or send a warning signal to the machine operator when it detects a person or object in the machine’s path. Mine operators are increasingly installing these proximity detection systems on mining equipment in surface and underground mines to prevent

Jul 10, 2019 One common example is the use of proximity sensors on the heavy machinery and vehicles used within the mine. The sheer size and weight of this machinery can cause damage if they collide with other machinery or the surrounding environment (which could cause rocks or debris to fall if there is a sufficient impact).
