SafeDetect™ provides the industry’s most accurate and reliable real-time proximity detection and collision avoidance protection between light vehicles, heavy machinery and mining personnel.

Based on intelligent technology choices, the WASP platform, robust design, quick and easy installation and intuitive end user interfaces, Minetec’s SafeDetect is the most reliable, operationally relevant and configurable proximity awareness system on the market.

Key benefits include:

  • Reduced risk of collisions between heavy machinery, light vehicles and personnel.
  • Ease of installation and maintenance: reduced production loss due to installation or maintenance down time.
  • Ease of use – lower reaction time for operators.
  • Accuracy and reliability: powered by both Magnetic Wave TTR & HP Tracking technologies.
  • High system availability: industry hardened system components, no reliance on GPS or additional infrastructure.
  • Complete confidence in the system: no false alarms.
  • Machine interface: offering dynamic speed based alarm profiles or machine interlock capabilities.

SafeDetect is a truly peer-to-peer system and operates independently of infrastructure or GPS. The WASP technology is resilient to dust, mud, fog and rain, making it dependable in the most challenging of mining conditions. Our multi-sensor installations deliver system redundancy as well as absolute locations of hazards around SafeDetect enabled vehicles. This functionality enhances system reliability by providing internal system self-checks as well as the capability for sub-meter accuracy tracking of assets or personnel around heavy machinery.

SafeDetect can reliably detect and display the number and range of vehicles and personnel within its work area down to sub meter accuracy. Ranging from a simple display through to a full situational awareness touch screen, the system provides an operator with the information it needs in real-time to ensure improved safety in all mining scenarios.

SafeDetect features highly flexible hardware configuration options allowing for installation on any vehicle. Whether a haul truck or excavator, wheel loader or grader, using appropriate hardware and software configurations, the system can be designed to dynamically adjust zone and alarm profiles on speed, working groups or location and also feed triggers back to the machine itself if machine interlocks are required.
