US based inthinc Technology, has introduced a new technology called blastZone that helps mining companies to receive real-time tracking and instant alerts for vehicles operating in open pit mining blast zones.
When a mining company is planning a detonation, their dispatch can easily create a blast zone map through the online inthinc portal, according to inthinc.
The manager can instantly see the location of every vehicle in the fleet in one click and determine whether any of the trucks are in the blast zone.
inthinc CEO Todd Follmer said the new technology increases the safety level at mining sites by giving companies real-time vehicle positioning and real-time warnings for drivers regarding the time and location of a planned detonation.
blastZone comes as part of inthinc waySmart fleet safety system.
