Why SAFEmine™


Massive shovels, bulky haul trucks, hard-to-see berms, workers going about their business on foot - the environment in which you and your machines work each day is full of potential dangers, dangers that could easily cause a fatality!


...And from the driver's position in his haul truck there are many blind spots.


The SAFEmine™ GPS technology is designed to alert drivers to dangerous situations and aims to eliminate the high number of transport-related incidents so common to open-pit mining.


SAFEmine™ is a compact, traffic alert and collision avoidance system, suitable for installation in all types of vehicles in open pits – from haul trucks, shovels and dozers to contractors’ bakkies – providing both audio and visual indication warnings of possible collisions.


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. With over 25,000 units installed in mining vehicles, this technology has become a worldwide leader in the field of Traffic Awareness and Collision Avoidance.

SAFEmine Diagram 1


Awareness - Within a range of typically

800 meters, SAFEmine™ is aware of

positions and courses of all  SAFEmine™ -

enabled vehicles. Once vehicles are within

preset range, SAFEmine™ will make the

operator aware of them.

Dynamic Safety Zone (DSZ)

- Configurable for each vehicle, based on vehicle type, size and characteristics


Warning - SAFEmine™ minimizes false alarms using comprehensive, real-time information including: vehicle type, speed, distance, and course of travel. If vehicles are on a collision course, operators are alerted until appropriate action is taken to avoid an accident.
