Mine Exploration Robots
Despite advances in worker safety and protective policies, mines remain a dangerous place to work. That’s why companies have begun to look towards robotics as a way to keep workers safe. Robots allow workers to remotely inspect shafts and tunnels without exposing themselves to potential danger.
Decommissioning a mine is a long and complex process involving surveying, hazardous material removal, structural inspection and demolitions. By using robots to perform inspections of tunnels and shafts undergoing decommissioning you can lower the chance or injury, accurately log progress, and remotely identify areas of concern.
Mine Maintenance and Safety
Monitoring changes in a mine is crucial for both safety and efficiency. The ability to record and scan tunnels, slopes, benches, and stabilizing structures can be crucial. By using autonomous robots to create a record workers can spot small changes before they become big problems!
Placing and detonating explosives is a dangerous part of mining. What can be even more dangerous than an explosive in a tight space? Having to go check an explosive that didn't go off when it was supposed to. Using a robot, workers can safely and remotely inspect and interact with explosives.
Hazardous Material Inspection
Sometimes old mines need to be inspected for hazardous materials. Clients in the past have used our robots to locate potash leftover from past operations. In those instances it was far safer and more affordable to send in an inspection robot rather than expose workers to harm.
Check potentially dangerous areas of a mine before a human steps foot inside. Using advanced cameras and gas sensors, robots can report on the condition of a mine and identify potential risks, all without putting a human in harm's way.
Record video and readings as you inspect. Use state of the art 3D mapping to create detailed records of the interior of a mine. Identify/mark potential risks, track changes, and provide workers with easy to understand maps of work areas.
Use your equipment to perform repetitive, dangerous, or dull tasks. Autonomous systems can allow you to run large-scale mine operations with fewer onsite specialists. Protect your workers, increase efficiency, and improve employee retention with the reliability of robotics.
