EMESRT Vehicle Interaction

Description and Scope:

This project aims to improve the effectiveness and reliability of vehicle interaction controls in mining.

Industry-level initiatives include:

  • “The development of interoperability standards between third-party PDS suppliers and equipment supplied by OEM’s – a common interface protocol allows PDS controls in mixed equipment fleets. This has led to the development of an international standard ISO 21815 Collision Awareness and Avoidance – Part 2 that formally defines the interface protocol.
  • In 2017, EMESRT prepared a paper seeking Collaboration with the ICMM Risk Committee, ICMM Collaborative Technology Acceleration Summits which has led to involvement and ongoing collaboration during 2019 for the ICMM Innovation for Cleaner Safer Vehicles (ICSV) VI programme.
  • Supporting and contributing to the industry review of the ACARP Proximity Detection System Validation Framework Project C26028. The outcomes of this project are being aligned to allow transition into ISO 21815 to formalise the methodology for all to reference” (source: https://emesrt.org/vehicle-interaction/).
