LSM Technologies Pty Ltd has been awarded a major contract with BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) Goonyella / Riverside Mine to fit Orlaco Camera Systems to meet their Collision Avoidance System (CAS) for their Dump Truck Fleet

Further to our last news story BMA/ LSM / Orlaco install Camera Viewing Solution for Dump Trucks, LSM Technologies Pty Ltd has been awarded a major contract with BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) Goonyella / Riverside Mine to fit Orlaco Camera Systems to meet their Collision Avoidance System (CAS) for their 45 X Dump Truck Fleet.

The BMA- Goonyella- Riverside (CAS) Project involves 4 x Cameras fitted to the existing 45 x Komatsu / Caterpillar Dump Trucks to eliminate blind areas and enhance the Operators vision 360 Degree around the Dump Truck.

As can be depicted above the views provide for upto 30 Metres around the vehicles and cover the blind areas that are restricted to the Operator.

Whilst enhanced  / increased Safety is the primary focus for the LSM / Orlaco CAS system, other benefits for Damage Control and Productivity enhancements are also provided by:

  • Reduction of damage to vehicles, berms, etc.
  • Avoidance of obstacles that can damage vehicles and also Tyres.
  • Quicker turn- around of the vehicles.
  • Reduction in operator fatigue.
  • Etc.   

Incidents involving poor visibility for operators of mining equipment are a major source of reportable safety incidents in surface mining operations every year.

The introduction of LSM Technologies- Orlaco Camera Solutions
technology significantly improves the safety of employees and reduces production and operation losses as a direct result of safety related incidents involving mobile equipment on mining sites.

After Trails were completed in March / April of 2007 at BMA's Goonyella Mine Site and an extensive review of other types of collision prevention technologies, BMA Riverside / Goonyella have selected LSM Technologies Camera Solutions as the most suitable system to reduce the potential for collisions between heavy surface mobile equipment, light vehicles and stationary objects and personnel.


All components of the Camera Systems are also designed for robustness and easily met the requirements for enhanced viewing in all arduous operating conditions of the mining industry / vehicles. LSM Technologies / Orlaco Cameras are flexible with multiple viewing angles.

Unlike others systems, the Orlaco Cameras systems are designed specifically for constant usage, with 10 years / 20, 000 operating hour design service life and LSM Technologies provide three (3) year warranties.

A robust Camera Solution that provides reliability and longevity is only half the solution. LSM Technologies with Orlaco also provide extensive R&D to continuously improve their systems.

Also, LSM Technologies provides extensive support and documentation in regards to training operators, after- market support so as to ensure that all aspects of their advantages to increase Safety, Damage Control and Productivity Enhancements are maximised for their clients.
