Nanotron and Selectronic to Launch Collision Avoidance Solution at embedded world

January 25, 2019 Laura Dolan

Berlin, Germany. Nanotron Technologies GmbH and Selectronic have joined forces on releasing the PDS2400 Collision Avoidance Solution (CAS) for open-pit mine safety.

The PDS2400 will be presented at embedded world in Nuremberg, Germany, February 26-28, 2019.

It was designed to be a RF-based proximity device that detects collision proximity and conveys warnings between fast-moving vehicles, and vehicles and pedestrians with two viewing options: quad sectors or hex sectors.  

The PDS2400 CAS solution is built with Controller Area Network (CAN) bus-based displays and personnel tags with wireless Qi chargers and can function for up to 50 hours before it needs to be recharged.

For high reliability there are three adjustable warning zones, and the vehicle system provides the driver with nuisance alarm suppression.

“Nanotron’s market-leading expertise in location awareness has enabled us to quickly and economically develop a powerful, robust, industry-grade collision avoidance system,” Jens Richter, Selectronic’s Managing Director, said.
