I think ALL mine sites should have this system to ensure the added safety of all Mine Personnel.
The J.A.W.S. 2 system (Jannatec Advanced Warning System) consists of a series of radio frequency transceivers attached to all underground vehicles, personnel and fixed hazards. Mine personnel will receive a clearly visible visual warning when in the vicinity of a moving vehicle or fixed hazard. In the same way, pedestrians are quickly detected by the operators of oncoming vehicles. JAWS 2 is able to tell the operator whether he is approaching a single worker, or a group of workers.
