Real-time automated mine monitoring solutions

February 4th, 2018, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Two scanner and software packages, developed by 3D Laser Mapping, are set to boost safety, efficiency and productivity for underground and open pit mining operations. Sitemonitor software gets an upgrade with the introduction of Sitemonitor Live, a scalable solution for mine surveying, asset monitoring and inventory management, which provides real-time data and automated reports for improved operational intelligence.

Comprising three integrated software modules (+Volumes, +Berms and +Slopes), the solution captures and manages 3D point cloud data, and has been designed to be deployed in mining and quarrying environments and any other locations where bulk materials are stored and handled. The second new package, Processmonitor Live, provides real-time, automated measurements of underground surfaces. Designed to be deployed in underground mining, construction and tunnel settings, the scanner and software package provides a visual representation of surface change in processes such as sprayed concrete application, tunnel excavation and slope stability monitoring. Both packages offer to improve efficiency of mining processes and automate tasks which are time consuming and complex to manage and monitor.
