Booyco Electronics’ fully integrated Proximity Detection System (PDS) represents the latest generation of this technology and offers a supply of information, enabling the safety intervention capability with a data hub that allows integration with TMM OEM’s equipment as well as with surface vehicles.

The Booyco Electronics PDS was developed using the latest electronic technology to facilitate effective and reliable communication, and is suitable for use both underground and on surface. The PDS transfers information between users via Booyco Electronics’ Human Machine Interface. System communication is exchanged with operators using icons making it easy to understand.

The PDS is deployed following specific risk assessments ensuring fit-for-purpose application and the provision of appropriate information to facilitate safety interventions with TMM and other OEM underground and surface vehicles. The deployment of PDS technology could vary between different types of vehicles on a single site.

These high performance and reliable systems incorporate VLF technology for pedestrian detection either on surface or underground together with GPS technology for vehicle detection on surface.

The Booyco Electronics PDS delivers specific warning, controlled slow-down and stopping zone alerts around a vehicle when detecting pedestrians or other vehicles. This is unique in that it is able to achieve zone shaping and create narrow band zones in close proximity on the side of the vehicles to meet specific operational requirements.

The system is manufactured with full self-diagnostics, and has visual and voice display activated in the case of a warning or a system failure. It incorporates various downloading options for recorded data, including wireless when at an access point. It is supplied complete with testing equipment for both the surface and underground areas to ensure maximum functionality. The system is also IS-compliant meeting the safety requirements of fiery mines.

BEAMS software is used as a reporting tool to ensure that the PDS and APS events can be analysed and used as a change-in-behaviour tool.

INTEGRATING A NEW WORLD OF TECHNOLOGY ON MINES

The mine of the future is being built increasingly on highly specialised technologies, many of which are quite new to the skill sets that mines traditionally employ. This has led to the emergence of ‘technology integrators’ who must assist mines in getting the most value from emerging innovations. Anton Lourens,…

PROXIMITY DETECTION MOVES WITH THE TIMES

As the mining industry works to improve the level of safety around mining vehicles, proximity detection systems (PDS) and collision prevent systems (CPS) have been evolving into more interactive collision avoidance systems.
