Hexagon connects slope stability monitoring with mine operations

By GeoConnexion - 26th August 2020 - 11:19

Hexagon’s Mining division and IDS GeoRadar, a Hexagon company, jointly announced the mining industry’s first straightforward integration of systems for safety and radar-based slope stability hazards. The single platform is part of the newly released HxGN MineProtect Collision Avoidance System (CAS) 4.6. It means mines can now receive real-time equipment visualization with timely alerts about hazardous areas for people and machinery. Workers and equipment are protected from injury-threatening events by being forewarned of no-go-zones. No-go zones are identified in IDS GeoRadar’s IBIS Guardian software, which creates geofenced zones and hazard maps, and is correlated with radar alarms. Guardian’s integration with CAS 4.6 and complementary HxGN MineProtect solutions, Personal Alert and Tracking Radar, ensures that alarms are automatically triggered when a no-go zone is approached.
