The goal of this challenge is to design a personal safety device for use by people working near potentially dangerous autonomous equipment at a mine site. The device provides an emergency stop, allowing a user to stop nearby equipment if they feel unsafe – for example if a collision is imminent. The device must be able to communicate with any brand of equipment.
With awesome cash and technology development prizes.
