A Collision Awareness System Your Operators Will Actually Trust
The MineAlert™ Collision Awareness System (CAS) is an early-warning system that alerts equipment operators to potential collisions with other CAS-equipped vehicles, helping to improve your operators’ safety awareness and reduce the likelihood of vehicle-to-vehicle collisions.
To minimize false alarms, predictive algorithms analyze the location, speed, and trajectory of all vehicles in the monitored vicinity, generating alerts only when potentially hazardous conditions exist. By generating alerts that your operators actually trust, the MineAlert CAS increases your operators’ situational awareness and system confidence, helping you drive a zero-harm workplace.
Go Beyond Proximity Detection to:
What Can the MineAlert CAS do for you?
- Determine a vehicle’s collision risk based on travel speed, instantaneous direction, predicted path, and other factors
- Alert operators about potential dangers without delay, allowing them to take corrective actions to prevent a collision
- Differentiate between true collision risks and mere proximity events, such as when two haul trucks pass each other on the same road
- Address the most common vehicle-to-vehicle collision scenarios, including:
- Forward collisions (FCW)
- Take-Off collisions (TOW)
- Head-On collisions (HOC)
- Speed Limit violations
- Intersections (IMA)
When it comes to safety, we do not measure effort or resources.
The acquisition of this technology (CAS) is another investment we make to assure safe operation with zero injury”

Trust a Faster Technology
The CAS leverages Dedicated Short-range Communications (DSRC) technology.
This vehicle-to-vehicle communications standard is swiftly being adopted by many consumer automotive manufacturers for its ability to provide 360-degree detection and transmit instant messages without the need for WiFi or line of sight.

The MineAlert™ Collision Awareness System (System) is designed to reduce the risk of certain accidents by providing visual and audio warnings to the driver of a potential collision. The System has limitations and cannot notify of all impending accidents. This System is not a replacement for proper safe and attentive driving. Please drive carefully at all times and do not rely on technology to prevent a collision. The System is only activated in certain circumstances and may not engage in all driving situations, weather, or road conditions. Accordingly, never wait for a collision warning. The driver is always responsible for proper operation of the vehicle and for maintaining the correct distance and speed – even when the Collision Awareness System is used. Failure to comply with these instructions could result in serious injury or death.
