Global mine safety monitoring

11 February 2009

SiteMonitor from 3D Laser Mapping combines the latest laser scanning technology with sophisticated software to capture and continuously analyse highly accurate measurements pit walls and mined material. It is used to improve safety and optimise production at mines around the world. With millions of measurements every minute, the Global Operations Centre technicians monitor system performance and check the data for consistency.

Monitoring data is continuously streamed to a Global Operations Centre where experienced support technicians scrutinise the information to ensure each system is operating correctly and the data presented to the onsite engineers can aid and support what is often critical decision making.
The SiteMonitor laser scanning system includes the latest long range laser scanners, which can capture up to 11,000 point measurements per second, to an accuracy of 10mm and at a range of up to 1,000 metres. A rugged and fully portable sensor the system includes a calibrated and accurately orientated high-resolution digital camera. The data captured is analysed using 3D Laser Mapping’s SiteMonitor analysis software, which tracks and compares displacement measurements over time, providing early warning of abnormal movement and therefore potential failures in the active mining area that may impact on production, cause damage to equipment or even injury to personnel.
