ECS partners with HED on collision avoidance system for Sibanye Stillwater project in South Africa
Overview: Underground mining requires both miners and machines to navigate through tight spaces. Mining operations must diligently maintain safety to ensure hard-working individuals make it home at the end of the week or month of onsite work. As one of the leading mining groups in South Africa, Sibanye Stillwater implements international safety standard and prevention measures described in ISO21815 that are imposed by the Division of Mine Reclamation (DMR), the mining council of South Africa. ISO21815 requires earth moving underground/surface machines to comply with what is known as a Level 9, slow down and stop intervention system. More specifically, a collision warning and avoidance system.
