It can be challenging for vehicle operators to give their full attention during loading operations when surrounded by other moving dump trucks or graders, especially when driving space is limited due to embankments. SICK Sensor Intelligence provides a high-precision driver assistance system that monitors the area around the vehicle. It guides operators safely to the correct loading position. The operating display indicates all obstacles within the relevant warning field. If a collision is imminent, the operator will be warned by an audible alarm so that the current maneuver can be safely stopped promptly.



SICK is one of the world's leading producers of sensors and sensor solutions for industrial applications. Through our partnership, we offer focused machine systems for trucks, excavators, wheel loaders for surface mining, and the tunnel positioning systems for underground mining.

Collision warning and production assistance for Shovels and Excavators

Excavator Protection System

The system alerts an operator if the excavator is about to collide with objects behind the vehicle and if vehicles come too close to the excavator. Unlike a simple collection of sensors, the MINESIC100 EPS constantly updates information about its surroundings and evaluates objects' size, speed, and location.

Features of SICK's Excavator Protection System

  • Active collision warning for shovel operator and other heavy vehicles
  • Vehicle positioning and loading assistance
  • Highwall collision warning
  • Visual feedback (touch screen operator display) and audible alarm
  • Open interface to fleet management/dispatch systems and event logging

Collision awareness, operator guidance, and machine protection on Mine Sites

Truck Protection System

The Truck Protection System (TPS) alerts an operator if the haul truck is about to collide with objects in front or behind the vehicle and about to veer from the designated roadway. The MINESIC100 TPS constantly updates information about its surroundings and evaluates objects' size, speed, and location.

Features of SICK's Truck Protection System
  • Intelligent Front-End collision warning
  • Road Departure Warning
  • Reverse Assist (collision, tire and suspension protection)
  • Black Spot Warning (geo-fencing of hazardous areas)
  • Visual feedback (touch screen operator display) and audible alarm
  • Open interface to fleet management/dispatch systems and event logging
  • Full functional operation across speed range (0 - 60km/h)

Collision warning and guided reversing for Front End Loaders and Dozers

Wheel Loader Protection System

To protect wheel loaders and dozers from blind spots and assist in reversing, the Wheel Protection System (WPS) offers an intelligent rear-end collision warning helping to reduce vehicle accidents through complete articulation. Installation is easy on both new and retrofit vehicles with the integrated system of sensors, computer hardware and software. In addition, the open Ethernet communication interface coordinates with existing onboard and fleet management systems.
 

Features of SICK's Wheel Loader Protection System

  • Full coverage rear-end collision warning
  • Visual feedback (touch screen operator display) and audible alarm
  • Open interface to fleet management/dispatch systems and event logging
  • Full functional operation across speed range (0 - Vmax)
  • Active reverse assist for maneuvering in confined spaces
  • Displays accurately all obstacles behind the vehicle (windows, vehicles, personnel) in real time
