A tragic accident occurred at a mining company: an excavator crushed a smaller machine. The operator did not see his colleague working in the restricted zone. It was necessary to develop a protection that would prevent the recurrence of similar accidents.
In the mining field, not only the weather conditions, but also the flying dust make detection difficult. We have proposed a special thermal imager solution which creates a direction-dependent virtual line of defense on both sides of the excavator. If the camera detects a machine or person inside of the line, alerts the machine operator.
APPROACHING DANGEROUS MACHINES
Emergency shutdown when someone enters a machine's danger zone during operation, therefore preventing potential accidents
ASSIGNING OF RESTRICTED ZONES
Alerts when hazardous materials or areas is approached by civilians
TEMPORARY CLOSED CONSTRUCTION SITES
Supervising temporary designated dangerous areas, alerting on an event of intrusion
Monitoring human presence within areas of crane tracks and machines
We received a request regarding the protection of a solar farm. Our task was to develop a system for the constant supervision of the farm.
As constant personal presence and guarding could not be ensured, we proposed a software solution, that creates a virtual restricted zone on the camera image. If a person or machine enters, it will alert the security service in charge of guarding the site.
