Mine Rock Characterisation
Point cloud processing software for geotechnical analysis using modern 3D imaging technologies.
Characterise rock mass safely and efficiently
Quickly and easily generate detailed information by processing 3D point cloud data from LIDAR scans and photogrammetry.
Hexagon software is designed specifically to extract geotechnical information from point clouds. For rock mass characterisation, important attributes of the geologic structure are extracted from the point clouds, including discontinuity orientation and spacing.
Using drillhole data to characterise faults and other structures is essential to understanding and using rock characterisation for mine planning.
Hexagon software leverages point cloud processing of 3D point cloud data from LIDAR scans and photogrammetry, allowing quickly and easily generated detailed geotechnical information, such as:
- Cell mapping and pre-rock blast conditions, including in-situ block size and joint spacing
- Cross-sections analysis for slope instability, rockfall modelling and accurate measurement of burden
- Change detection for rockfall and ground movement
For rock mass characterisation, important attributes of the geologic structure are extracted from the point clouds, including discontinuity orientation and spacing. The orientation results are plotted on a stereonet and the primary joint sets are determined.
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.
Human performs all tasks, no data being used
Human is in charge of performing tasks but certain functions are automated to simplify control
Some tasks are automated so that operation can be autonomous for short periods (or within specific circumstances)
Autonomous operation is possible within certain bounds, but human intervention may be necessary at short notice
Designed to complete required tasks autonomously, but may require human intervention if circumstances change beyond specific bounds
Control tasks automated under all conditions, but human may request to take over; can complete all expected tasks without human intervention
