RealTrac «Open Cast Mining» proximity detection and positioning system provides personnel and vehicles positioning and allows to trac the objects to minimize the probability of incidents


The RealTrac “Open Cast Mining” includes the following safety and efficiency increasing products



RealTrac Positioning

The product is designed to determine the location of miners, mining equipment and other objects in various areas of open pit mining, using various radio technologies.

Tasks to be solved


Control of the location of miners on the territory of a quarry or section

Control of the location of miners on the territory of a quarry or section

The dispatcher can receive real-time data on the current location of all miners or mining equipment, as well as information about the path traveled by the controlled object for a given period.

Control of access levels of miners

Control of access levels of miners

Thanks to the creation of geofences with different access levels, the dispatcher always knows whether one or another miner is in the permitted or prohibited zone. The reporting and analytics system allows you to identify systematic violations of access levels and prevent possible incidents.

Control of working hours and access levels of personnel

Control of working time, time spent in the geofence

The RealTrac system allows you to register the time of entry /exit of employees in a certain geofence. This allows you to control their presence in certain areas and in areas of work. And also notify the dispatcher or miner if necessary to leave the zone. At the same time, data on movements, time spent in various zones and events are stored on the server for up to 10 years.

Emergency notification of miners

Emergency notification of miners during drilling and blasting operations

The system allows real-time monitoring of the process of personnel withdrawal from the hazardous area where drilling and blasting operations are planned. The system also helps with evacuation: the time spent, the trajectories of workers during the evacuation announcement, and most importantly - determining the current location of workers who could not get to safe collection points in time.

Evacuation and detection of miners caught in an accident

Evacuation and detection of miners caught in an accident

The system allows you to monitor the evacuation process in real time: the time spent, the trajectories of the movement of miners during evacuation and, most importantly, determining the current location of workers who could not get to safe collection points in time.

* - it is possible to configure zones according to the Customer's request

  • Backbone channel: BLE or other data transfer protocol**

* - According to the Customer's requirements

  • Restrictions: Work only in the area of radio visibility of access points
  • Implementation costs: low

Global positioning

Combines the advantages of zonal and global positioning.

  • Accuracy: +/- 1-5 (20) meters
  • Detection range: unlimited
  • Zone configuration: from 10 sq.m.
  • Backbone channel: Wi-Fi, LoRa or other data transfer protocol*

* - According to the Customer's requirements

  • Restrictions: Zonal positioning works indoors. Global positioning works in an open area
  • Implementation costs: average

RealTrac Collision Awareness

The product is designed to reduce the number of accidents associated with a collision of vehicles and machinery, as well as collisions of vehicles with miners in conditions of insufficient or poor visibility.

Tasks to be solved

The product solves problems in two directions of control:

Direction: Vehicle - vehicle (V2V)

Tasks

  • Improving the safety of the movement of quarry transport in conditions of poor or insufficient visibility
  • Reduction of costs associated with downtime and repair of quarry equipment as a result of a collision

Functions

  • Fixing the fact of dangerous proximity of vehicles and mining equipment
  • Notifying the driver/miner or operator about the possibility of a collision

Direction: Vehicle - personnel (V2P)

Tasks

  • Helps to reduce the level of injuries associated with the impact of mining equipment on people
  • Allows you to make safe maneuvers of quarry fleet with several people around it

Functions

  • Fixing the fact of a dangerous incident related to hitting a miner
  • Notification of the miner's presence in the danger zone for the vehicle operator and for the person in a same time

Advantages of preventing collisions between vehicles and with miners

The system can operate autonomously and also be integrated into other systems

Full autonomy of the system (Access to GPS and GSM signal is not required for operation)



Operating principle and components

Provides a situational understanding of the environment around the vehicle, identifying the presence of vehicles, people or objects inside previously defined zones. As soon as an object, vehicle or employee equipped with a collision awareness system tag approaches previously defined zones, the system issues a tangible, audible and visible warning.

The notification can be sent using:

Sound notification from the equipment, the inclusion of sirens or beeps

Equipment for miners


PROD TAG 720 or PROD TAG 210 - personal tracker for a miner

Personal tag (tracker) PROD TAG 720 or PROD TAG 210 - is issued to the miner and with its help the location relative to the vehicle with the installed antennas of the collision prevention system is determined. The tag is made in the form of a separate wearable device.


Equipment for vehicles


Display PROD CAS 1500
PROD CAS 1500 VOD

The display is installed in the driver's cab and serves for visual assessment of the situation around the vehicle, receiving alerts about a dangerous approach and monitoring the status of the system.

Control unit PROD CAS 1500
Control unit PROD CAS 1500 VCU

The control unit is installed on the transport and calculates the distance from the tag to the antennas and the direction of movement of the tag. Determines which of the control zones the tag is located in and, depending on this, displays information about objects in different zones on the driver's display and includes light-graphic or sound warning signals.

Antenna PROD CAS 1500
Antenna PROD CAS 1500 VBU

The antenna is installed in an amount of 4-6-8 pieces, depending on the size and configuration of mining equipment and is used to detect personal tags (trackers) or antennas installed on other equipment.


Autonomous operation mode


The system has built-in software and has absolute autonomy from other systems and the data transmission network.

When implementing a backbone channel, the system can transmit data on recorded dangerous approaches, collisions and other information to the RealTrac system server. This allows for the subsequent analysis of incidents and the construction of work report.
