Boost safety with the VIA Mobile360 Mining Kit, a ruggedized system that enables operators of cranes, excavators, trucks and other heavy equipment to work in the most hazardous industrial environments. The system gives vehicle operators an enhanced view of their surroundings with a live 360° video stream of the vehicle exterior, coupled with Blind Spot and Front Collision Detection.
Designed to excel in the toughest of mining and quarry environments, the VIA Mobile360 Mining Kit is centered around a tough and ruggedized VIA Mobile360 M820 system connected to four FOV-190 Gen-Lock cameras to present the operator with a live 360-degree surround view of the vehicle – crucially this means vastly improved situational awareness for vehicles such as 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 by presenting three distinctly colored bands, the closest and most hazardous area represented with red band.
Safety can be further enhanced with additional ADAS cameras that support Blind Spot and Collision Detection. Additional cameras can be added to the system for Dynamic Moving Object Detection (DMOD), further enhancing safety when reversing in dangerous mining environments.
To ensure the VIA Mobile360 Mining Kit offers rock solid reliability in the harshest of operational environments, the VIA Mobile360 M820 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 sealed, IP67-certified water proof enclosure design uses IP69K cables glands that ensure neat and seamless cable connections to the cameras and the cockpit display, while also being suitable for high-pressure, industrial wash down procedures.

Placing a computer in a metal box and bolting it to the inside of an excavator, dozer or truck may seem like an adequate approach to upgrading industrial vehicles. The reality as we now understand it, is in fact much more complex.
VIA Mobile360 Mining Kit is a complete ruggedized system that reduces injuries and fatalities from vehicle collisions in hazardous mining and quarry environments. The system will be launched at CIM 2019 Convention in Montreal.
