What is SAFEmine?
SAFEMine™ is a compact traffic alert and collision avoidance system, suitable for all types of vehicles in open-pit mines. It warns with audio and visual indications of possible collisions and supports the driver by improving his traffic awareness.
Who is SAFEmine?
SAFEmine was established in Switzerland in 2008 and partnered with Trysome Auto Electrical (Pty) Ltd, bringing GPS-based traffic awareness and collision avoidance technology to open-pit mines in Southern Africa. In 2014 SAFEmine was acquired by Hexagon Mining and forms part of their mining Safety Suite.
The SAFEmine™ technology, originally developed to provide safe, reliable and accurate collision warning for general aviation, is widely deployed on all continents to enhance vehicle safety in open-pit mines. SAFEmine™ is designed to minimise nuisance warnings even in high traffic density with dynamic trajectories, which create complex traffic constellations.
