Proximity Awareness, part of the Cat® MineStar™ System, delivers a new level of mine safety by providing information to equipment operators and mine administrators about the environment surrounding mobile equipment. Global Navigation Satellite System receivers and data radios on site equipment continually report machine positions to each other and to a central office, allowing every operator to know the real-time position of all other reporting machines. Proximity Awareness uses this information to define a machine body, create avoidance areas within and around the machine, and provide a warning if a collision is anticipated.
