The high-precision anti-collision system for trucks and auxiliary vehicles developed by TORSA includes LIDAR 3D technology, which is able to analyse its environment with a very high level of precision and definition. Thanks to the fusion of technologies and the precision of analysis of the environmental analysis, the system adapts its security levels according to the situation in which it finds itself (hauling, loading, positive slope, high speed, etc.). The system is designed to protect the vehicle operator at all times, proactively and predictively assessing and alerting potential risk situations.
The collision avoidance system generates different reports aimed at covering the needs of the different departments of the mining operation. The reports can be customized by the client to obtain daily the necessary information in each case. Through these reports, both operational and management personnel can obtain the most relevant data for the evaluation of internally established KPIs. For example, a list of vehicles that have generated risk situations or have not been positioned correctly when loaded, permitting the identification of those operators which are more likely to require retraining.
Like all TORSA solutions, the collision avoidance system for trucks and light vehicles is integrated into the TORSA Cloud environment, thus ensuring the correct interaction, operation and technical information management for all our clients.
TORSA collaborates actively with the International Council on Mining & Metals (ICMM) where the company is involved in the Innovation for Cleaner Safer Vehicles (ICSV) program, which brings together 27 of the world’s leading mining companies and technologies suppliers to collaborate in a non-competitive space in order to accelerate the development of a new generation of mining vehicles.
Our system is designed to perform at Control Levels 7, 8 and 9 according to the safety requirements based on the ICSV program by ICMM following the EMESRT (The Earth Moving Equipment Safety Round Table):
