Radar based proximity sensor

To overcome the accidents of heavy vehicles at mining site, Radar based proximity sensors assist mine operators in minimizing the risk of accidents and injury.

Radar-based sensors deploy at the front and rear of their dump trucks. The sensors provide active object detection in vehicle blind spots without costly or time consuming alterations to existing collision avoidance devices.

The sensors emit fan-shaped beams of high frequency radio waves. To avoid false alerts, our each sensor was configured to create a sensing area corresponding to its blind spot, ignores objects outside area. An on-board video monitoring system allows the operator to check for any obstructions.

Each sensor is protected by a rugged IP67-rated housing, which ensures reliable operation, even when covered in caked-on mud.

Our radar based proximity sensor is

Ease of Setup – Protects DIP switches enabled quick onboard adjustment of sensing distance, sensitivity and output

Flexible Range – Adjustable sensing area of up to 15 m minimize false alerts cause by background objects outside of blind spot.

Total Cost – Radar sensors provided active object detection capability without expense or downtime of more complex systems

Features

  • Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW)  (true-presence) radar detects moving and stationary objects
  • Adjustable sensing field — ignores objects beyond set point
  • Easy setup and configuration of range, sensitivity, and output with simple DIP switches
  • Sensing functions are unaffected by wind, falling rain or snow, fog, humidity, air temperatures, or light
  • Sensor operates in Industrial, Scientific, and Medical (ISM) telecommunication band; no special license required
  • Rugged IP67 housing withstands harsh environments
