Mine Blast Vibration Monitoring
Use innovative radar technology to monitor blast-induced ground vibrations from remote distances.
Hexagon helps mine workers control the impact of blasts both on the pit and on nearby structures with a revolutionary remote monitoring system. From remote distances, using innovative radar technology, the system safely monitors blast-induced ground vibrations.
Ground vibration is one of the more significant impacts of blasting in the mining process. More than 80% of the energy of explosives is released by generating ground vibrations that spread through the rock and soil to surrounding structures, slopes and benches.
Modern mines depend on technology to control the impact of blast-induced ground vibrations both on the pit and on nearby structures.
Hexagon offers a remote monitoring system designed to support the assessment of mine blasting. Using microwave interferometry technology, Hexagon’s solution accurately measures remote broad areas for ground vibrations.
After every blast, the solution measures a range of performance indexes at multiple points from remote distances, without the need to physically place a sensor or marker on the slope. It’s accompanied by a versatile user-friendly software suite for data interpretation and analysis.
We’re climbing the automation curve
Our transition to Intelligent automation is accelerating. Ultimately, our innovations will give rise to new technologies and applications - many of which we’ve yet to imagine. Today, every Hexagon solution is mapped and tagged according to its level of automation, so customers can clearly track our progress towards the freedom of autonomy.
All tasks completed by human labour; no data is leveraged across the operation.
Labour is primarily conducted by a human workforce. Some functions have been automated to simplify control.
Some tasks are automated for short periods of time, accompanied by occasional human intervention.
Human workforce is used for intervention as autonomous operations begin to increase productivity.
Autonomous systems complete required tasks within specific bounds, unleashing data and building smart digital realities.
A smart digital reality™ enables autonomous systems to complete all tasks without human intervention.
