How safe is Komatsu’s FrontRunner AHS technology?
Safety has been the first priority of Komatsu in developing the FrontRunner system.
Each FrontRunner truck’s ODS can detect light mine vehicles and other mobile mine equipment – slowing or stopping them when required.
One of the biggest safety issues with dump truck operation is fatigue, particularly at night.
Mine personnel have reported that they feel far safer and less stressed with FrontRunner trucks operating around them, because they know their movements are constant and predictable 100% of the time.
