Solutions are the answer to an endemic problem.
•The old Eaton Vorad ETV 300 Collision Warning
System was considered the most advanced, most sophisticated and most effective accident avoidance system ever developed. The
concept and technology were borrowed from Warfare Avionics, in the civilian market since 1994. A patented monopulse radar
design produces a wide beam pattern to allow a broad coverage of the road. The sophisticated software, first introduced in
fighter jets, tracks up to 20 potential hazards in the truck’s intended path. It ignores non-threatening objects and
vehicles in other lanes, and even tracks hazards around curves in the road.
• This high frequency
77 Ghz radar system transmits radar signals from the front, alerting drivers to take evasive action in order to avoid impending
accidents. According to Eng. Ricardo H. Fernandez, Leadercomm Mineco’s President, "It remains our first priority
to continually seek and implement systems which enhance safety for drivers in mine operations. Our intention is quite obvious,
and that is to avoid accidents, injuries and cargo claims, improve productivity and lower insurance costs. This technology
offers proven potential for protecting drivers, improving dispatch and Systems, and that's exciting to me".
•The Central Processing Unit Calculates the need for driver alerts at relative closing speeds from .25
to 50 MPH for mining operations experience and success; Using VORAD, truck fleets have logged more than 1300 million miles
of safe driving. In all types of weather, the old EVT300 warns drivers of potential hazards, such as a vehicle in the driver’s
blind spot or a stopped or slow-moving vehicle ahead. It also “shapes” its tracking beam around highway curves-even
when there’s traffic in adjacent lanes. Thousands of heavy-duty trucks in more than 50 truck fleets are now using it
to dramatically reduce accidents and accident-related costs.
•Vorad in the Mining Industry: Eng. Ricardo H. Fernandez,
Leadercomm Mineco’s President, said" We have completed computer simulations and testing at the old EVT300’s
test facilities in US. The results were excellent! Vorad passed all the tests with regards to Mine Operation. We are currently
involved in a field test program and total Quality Program. This field test were very successfully, for 6 years at Southamerica/Australia
”, “ We are aware of problems like; drowsy drivers in the ramp or at sunrise, the tedium of low speed driving,
running off the road, rear end collision, fatigue, psychophysical overtime problems, off road with broken tires and the congestion
problem due to non uniform speed and access at the pit. All of these cause a loss in production and safety.”
