Committed to mining and quarrying vehicle safety

Where it all began! The mining and quarrying sector for Spillard is where the technology really adds value to benefit both the operator and the site manager. With an approximate number of 2,000 mines and quarries in the UK producing a vast range of materials, this is a sector that is complex, heavy, expensive to operate and, at times, a dangerous place to work, with the industry experiencing approximately 12,000 fatalities annually worldwide.

Spillard AI Human Detection System in action

In this video, the effectiveness of Spillard’s AI Human Detection System is demonstrated, showing how quickly the operator is alerted if an on-site worker is positioned within 5 metres of the vehicle in real time. Through deep learning technology, the operator is given full transparency of which direction on-site workers are located in, while the workers are informed when the machine can be safely approached.

These operators are required to work safely and efficiently with 24 hour shift patterns, sometimes in close proximity of another vehicle. For example, a 150 tonne dump truck could be working alongside an excavator to remove post-explosion rock, which is a high risk situation.

Spillard technology is able to eliminate this risk by providing state of the art camera technology, digital recorders and monitors, helping the driver to operate the machinery on site safely, whilst working efficiently around the clock.

In addition to camera technology, Spillard offers a range of sensors that can be applied to the front, side and rear of the vehicle, giving the operator a 360 degree view of the vehicle, but also sensors that make audible announcements including “door not shut”, “objects outside vehicle”, or a seatbelt notification to name but a few.

Example of vehicle types:

  • Bulldozers
  • Front Loaders
  • Off-Road Dump Trucks
  • Cranes
  • Loaders
  • Crawler Dozers
  • Excavators
  • Conveyors
