본 연구에서는 광산안전관리를 위한 충돌방지시스템의 개발 현황과 적용사례를 분석하였다. 광업 선진국인 미국과 호주에서 사용하는 충돌방지시스템의 용어를 정의하고 이용되는 센서 기술들을 비교하였다. 또한 해외의 광산 회사들이 개발한 충돌방지시스템인 $MineAlert^{TM}$ Collision Awareness System, Cat $MineStar^{TM}$, Intelligent Proximity Detection 기술 등에 대해 소개하였다. 국내 광업 분야에서는 충돌방지시스템을 개발한 사례가 없었으며 건설과 철도 분야에서 이와 유사한 개념의 시스템을 확인할 수 있었다. 충돌방지시스템을 도입하면 광산에서 발생할 수 있는 충돌사고를 방지하여 작업자의 안전을 개선시킬 수 있을 것이며, 해외의 개발 사례를 통해 국내 광산 환경에 적합한 센서 기술을 개발하고 적용하는 연구가 필요할 것으로 판단된다.
