Situation Awareness (SA) describes the comprehensive awareness of a particular situation. According to Endsley a situation is subdivided into the phases of perception, comprehension and projection, which ultimately result in an action. SA is used, for example, in the automotive sector where autonomous vehicles must respond to their environment. In this paper the same principle is being applied to the field of bulk materials transport in order to control and monitor conveying systems. The article demonstrates how Situation Awareness can be used for bulk materials transport systems, with reference to products supplied by the German company Rema Tip Top.
