Reduce risks of injury and death from on-site collisions with enhanced 360° situational awareness and ADAS collision detection
Taipei, Taiwan, April 26, 2019 – VIA Technologies, Inc. today announces the VIA Mobile360 Mining Safety Kit, a complete ruggedized system that reduces injuries and fatalities from vehicle collisions in hazardous mining and quarry environments. Drivers can benefit from enhanced situational awareness with a live 360° video stream of the vehicle exterior, plus customization options for Blind Spot and Front Collision Detection. The VIA Mobile360 Mining Kit will be showcased at the CIM 2019 Convention, Booth 3110, Montreal, on April 28th to May 1st.
“The VIA Mobile360 Mining Safety Kit enables mining and quarry operators to improve on-site safety and reduce the risk of accidents,” said Richard Brown, VP International Marketing, VIA Technologies, Inc. “We’re offering a complete solution suitable for a variety of mining vehicle applications that comes with customer-centric customization as standard.”
The VIA Mobile360 Mining Safety Kit is based around a tough and ruggedized system that uses four FOV-190 Gen-Lock cameras to present the operator with a live 360-degree surround view of the vehicle that vastly improves situational awareness for large excavators and bulldozers. The onscreen Tri-Band viewer highlights the area around the vehicle, assisting the driver to spot any intrusion within the hazardous range.
For vehicles tasked with moving materials from site to site, safety can be further enhanced with additional FOV-40 automotive-grade ADAS cameras, featuring support for Blind Spot and Collision Detection. Additionally, cameras can be added to the system for Dynamic Moving Object Detection (DMOD), further enhancing safety when reversing in dangerous mining environments.
Every effort has been made to ensure the VIA Mobile360 Mining Safety Kit offers rock solid reliability in the harshest of operational environments. The system is housed in a robust, dual-layered aluminum enclosure that protects it from environmental threats, including heavy vibrations, dirt, dust, high and low operating temperatures, plus rain and humidity. The enclosure’s smart design also ensures neat and seamless cable connections to the cameras and the cockpit display.
