In order to ensure the vehicle is in “safe” or “mine” mode when it enters a certain area (mine site etc.) the safety requirements are pre-set using the PowerMate. Now when the site is entered there is no risk of the driver failing to set the vehicle to the correct safety settings as the PowerMate will automatically set the truck to these safety specifications.
Oil transport vehicles having to enter a safe mode.
When the truck enters a mine site the PowerMate will read the on-board GPS and pick up the co-ordinates to automatically activate “safe/mine mode” when the vehicle enters a pre-set geo-fence. The PowerMate can do anything from turning on beacons, limiting the speed of the vehicle, ensuring head lights are turned on or off to tracking and retarding various components to ensure the risk of explosion is reduced as greatly as possible. When the vehicle enters the Geo fence the vehicle will automatically be returned to “road mode”. No time is wasted and risk of human error in forgetting to enter mine mode or setting the vehicle it incorrectly is removed entirely.
