Based in regional Queensland, our client is a large mining facility with diverse operations and well over 900 staff on site each day. Of those, a large percentage are required to move in light and heavy vehicles, all hours of the day and night.
Our team from Acubis assessed the site and its traffic incident history. Acubis addressed the problem in the same manner as for public road safety – with a speed radar camera. But unlike traditional radar cameras, Acubis integrated intelligent software into their solution and created Intercepta Smart Radar Camera. Infrared technology and solar panels allowed Intercepta to operate 24/7 and GPS location tracking confirmed the exact location of the mobile speed radar trailer.
Intercepta operates with a mobile communication trailer, encompassing a suite of technologies which monitor and record traffic as well as individual vehicle data. The intelligent software delivers advanced data analytics and customised reports, helping HSE Managers to monitor compliance and improve safety. The mobile trailer is easy to deploy and can be moved around site to monitor peak fleet movements and dangerous sections of road.
When installed and linked to the site’s existing wireless network, Intercepta provides visual feedback of speed in real time, helping drivers to monitor and manage their own speed. Video footage of the vehicle and registration plates are also sent to Mine Management so they can take immediate action against speeding offences.
