Hexagon Operator Alertness System (OAS)

Hexagon Operator Alertness System (OAS)
An integrated fatigue and distraction management solution to help operators to maintain the level of attention necessary for long hours and monotonous tasks

The mining industry demands world-class operational performance, not only in productivity but for safety, too. This includes driver fatigue and distraction, which are known to cause accidents. The danger increases for operators dealing with heavy and light machinery combined with monotonous work over long working hours.

HxGN Operator Alertness System (OAS) is an integrated fatigue and distraction-detection, alerting, and reporting solution that helps operators to maintain the level of attention necessary for long hours and monotonous tasks.

Integrated with HxGN Collision Avoidance System (CAS), OAS uses sophisticated computer vision technology combined with scientific body-clock modelling. It provides a real-time fatigue and distraction risk status and traffic awareness to operators via unobtrusive, operator-friendly displays.

OAS delivers reliable, audible, and visible alerts of fatigue and traffic-related events to avert imminent accidents. It features a web platform to continuously assess in real time the fatigue risks of individual operators and the complete fleet, allowing intervention, if necessary.

High-performance computer vision algorithms detect fatigue events, such as microsleeps or distraction. The system issues distinct audible alerts in the cabin to avert imminent accidents. Other alerts can be offered from GPIOs (General Purpose Inputs Outputs). The system also provides visual alerts in case of tampering. Operators receive an auto-diagnosis of errors via cabin display.

Integration means that existing CAS installations are easily upgradable to OAS-HV. OAS-HV and CAS are fully upgradeable to pedestrian detection with the latest release of HxGN Personal Alert. Obstacles detection can be upgraded by integrating with HxGN Tracking Radar. Vehicle intervention for open pit mines is available by upgrading to HxGN Vehicle Intervention System.

OAS helps our customers to keep their workforce safe and productive. They are informed of their operators’ fatigue levels and other dangerous situations. This helps reduce equipment down time and expensive repairs, keeping the business running smoothly. Most importantly, everyone goes home safely.
