Leverages smart sensor fusion technology combining camera detection with mmWave radar sensors to provide vehicle operators with real-time visual and audio alerts of potential safety threats
Minimizes risk of accidents and equipment damage in the world’s most hazardous mines, quarries, and construction sites independent of lighting and weather conditions
Supports the most popular types of loaders, off-highway trucks, and other vehicles
Taipei, Taiwan, September 13, 2021 – VIA Technologies, Inc. today announced that it will unveil its new VIA Mobile360 Heavy Equipment Safety System at MINEXPO® 2021, the world’s largest mining industry event, from 13 – 15 September 2021. The VIA booth is located at #555 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The VIA Mobile360 Heavy Equipment Safety System leverages its powerful 360-degree video and mmWave radar smart sensor fusion technology to provide operators of mining, excavation, and construction vehicles with real-time alerts of approaching vehicles, machinery, and workers in all weather, lighting, and working conditions. With its robust and flexible design, including a ruggedized IP67 waterproof enclosure, IP69K cameras and mmWave radar sensors, the system can be installed on wide variety of loaders, off-highway trucks, and other heavy equipment.
“With its smart visual intelligence and radar sensor fusion technologies, the VIA Mobile360 Heavy Equipment Safety System prevents accidents and saves lives in the world’s most dangerous working environments,” said Richard Brown, VP International Marketing, VIA Technologies, Inc. “Its ruggedized design and flexible customization options mean that the system delivers ultra-reliable operation on the most popular types of heavy vehicles independent of lighting and weather conditions.”
VIA Mobile360 Heavy Equipment Safety System
The VIA Mobile360 Heavy Equipment Safety System is a complete solution that includes the VIA Mobile360 M810 System with an IP67 ruggedized waterproof enclosure, four FOV190° IP69K 720p cameras, three IP69K 77GHz mmWave radar sensors, a choice of 8.2” and 10.1” HD monitors, and a 4.4W speaker. An extensive range of mountings and cables is also available. Highlights include:
Smart Sensor Fusion: To ensure the accurate and timely detection of potential safety hazards in all weather, lighting, and operational conditions, the VIA Mobile360 Heavy Equipment Safety System features smart sensor fusion technology combining camera detection with mmWave radar sensors. A single, unified interface on the in-cabin screen featuring real-time 360-degree video makes it easy for operators to view alerts and see everything that is happening around their vehicle.
Smart Detection: The system features two configurable Warning and Critical detection zones to notify operators of potential hazards around the left, right and rear sides of the vehicle. Whenever it detects an object or a person in either zone, it displays a color-coded indicator on the operator’s in-cabin screen. If it deems the object or person as a threat due to their trajectory, a blue box will flash around the color-coded indicator and the corresponding audio alert will also be played to alert the operator of the impending danger.
Reverse Gear: When the vehicle is reversing, all objects detected by the system’s rear camera and radar are treated as threats regardless of their trajectories, enabling the operator to take extra care when carrying out this most collision-prone maneuver.
Supported Vehicles: The system can be installed on a wide variety of vehicles, including the CAT 972M, CAT 980M, CAT 988K, CAT 775F, and John Deere 724. A comprehensive range of customization services is available to meet specific deployment requirements.”
