V2X technology has dominated conversations around mine vehicular safety for years. Yet, today’s most common V2X systems rely on a technology that actually hinders their full potential for safety in a live mining environment: low-fidelity positioning. Options are available to resolve this problem, though. Cameras and lidar are two technologies used in mining V2X that reliably improve safety outcomes, albeit with drawbacks. Now, a third solution is making inroads as an effective means of improving proximity detection without the complications of either camera or lidar systems: high-precision GNSS.
