Abstract

In the global mining industry, proximity warning systems are being increasingly deployed in mobile equipment such as haul trucks, partly due to the risk of collisions. This research first reviewed best practice interface design for new
technologies in the automotive domain: for example, the European Statement of
Principles on Human Machine Interfaces. Thereafter it reviewed the different types of proximity warning interfaces available in mining. Analysis then compared the
identified best practice in automotive with current proximity warning interfaces in
mining. Gaps found are discussed, and recommendations to improve the interface
design of proximity systems in mining are proposed.
