Working in and around Autonomous Haulage environments presents its safety challenges. In combination with our clients MTGA has developed solutions to assist with the management of personnel and vehicle movements in and out of designated AHS operational areas.
Access control is a fundamental component of safety compliance to ensure personnel that are entering the AHS area are safe and compliant and have the necessary technology onboard to interact with the existing operating environment.
These controls work by permitting access of approved vehicles to designated work zones, only permitting access when the onboard safety systems are operational thus ensuring safety compliance from a technical aspect. This segmentation provides a critical safety layer permitting only approved vehicles to safely and seamlessly interact with the AHS environment.
