AUSTRALIAN mining giant Rio Tinto will install a collision avoidance system developed by Rail Vision, Israel, on its rail network in Pilbara, Western Australia, under a proof-of-concept trial. Rio Tinto is looking to improve its existing collision detection systems to detect potential threats such as vehicles or people on or near the tracks, which carry driverless iron-ore trains.
If the tests are successful, Rail Vision could install its system on Rio Tinto’s fleet of nearly 220 locomotives. The system will be supplied by Hitachi Rail as the project integrator.
The nine-month project will be executed in three stages. The first phase will involve live demonstrations and data acquisition, while the second phase will include introductory technical work in connection with the deployment of the system. The third phase will see the installation of Rail Vision’s system in the third quarter of 2021 for about three months for assessment.
Rail Vision will also offer support, customisation, and development services throughout the project.
