In a new era of mining equipment, Hitachi is set to employ Nissan Motor’s around view monitor (AVM) and moving object detection (MOD) technology to its haul trucks and hydraulic excavators working at large open-pit mines. Following a licensing agreement, the contract will allow Hitachi to provide AVM and MOD technology to its massive collection of mining trucks around the world.

The Nissan developed AVM-MOD technology helps detect any movement or workers in the area when drivers start operating the vehicle, including drop cargo, back up load cargo, or when a hydraulic shovel is used in close proximity to the vehicle. The situation awareness technology helps lead to safety improvement as well as reducing human error during driving, contributing to a reduction in the number of accidents and injuries.
