Proximity detection system (PDS) and collision avoidance system (CAS)


Labor accidents, including collisions of vehicles and workers happen in underground mining, open pits, warehouses and manufactures.

These accidents may be caused by:

  • Staff’s negligence and lack of concentration;
  • Violation of safety regulation requirements;
  • Noise that prevents issuing an alarm signal.

Compliance with the Safety Regulations is one of the most crucial issues for any company since it influences the efficiency level and can be assessed by supervisory authorities that can lead to significant financial losses, expenses and fines.

Proximity detection (PDS) and collision avoidance system (CAS)
 

The RealTrac 3.0 back-up local positioning system has an additional function of collision avoidance and issuing a warning about dangerous proximity between people working on the object.

Tasks solved by the RealTrac 3.0 system:

  • Dangerous proximity is detected;
  • A vehicle driver receives a warning of a dangerous proximity to a person;
  • A worker also receives a warning of a dangerous proximity to a vehicle.

The personnel is supplied with personal tags that help to localize them on the object. Thanks to vehicle tags and antennas, each vehicle has two radiuses of  a dangerous proximity detection.

“Caution” radius

“Danger” radius

Is designed in order to detect a dangerous proximity and helps to attract personnel’s attention to it.

Is designed in order to detect an extremely dangerous (below a minimum authorized value) proximity level between a vehicle and a person.

  • Light signal.
    • Dashboard signal for a vehicle driver.
    • LED light on a personal tag.
  • Sound signal.
    • Repetitive sound signal inside the cabin.
    • Repetitive sound signal on a personal tag.

  • Light signal.
    • Emergency flashlights on a vehicle.
    • LED light on a personal tag.
  • Sound signal.
    • A vehicle emergency siren.
    • A vehicle horn.
    • A repetitive sound signal on a personal tag.


The system functions independently and doesn't require any connection to the positioning system or the Internet. It ensures that the system will detect dangerous proximity to the equipment and then will deliver the notification unconditionally.

Also the system detects dangerous proximity of two vehicles or any other equipment that helps to prevent collision and to avoid considerable repair expenses.
