Mine Patrolling Rovers

Published: 17 August 2020

The aim of this project was to provide the means for supporting the mine operation by a fleet of patrolling robots that could navigate autonomously throughout the mine area and perform multiple tasks that until now are being carried by humans. These robots will be equipped with specific vision and sensing sensors and could execute the tasks of: a) simultaneous mine mapping updating, b) structural health and safety monitoring, d) evaluation of air quality, and e) continuous monitoring of the mine infrastructure and the relevant applications, f) search and rescue operations on an emergency event, and g) specific ad-hoc defined tasks. This project has been funded by Hjalmar Lundbohm Research Center (HLRC) sponsored by LKAB.
