Two of the leading players in monitoring technology, Worldsensing and IDS GeoRadar, a Hexagon company, have cooperated to launch what they say is the most comprehensive mine safety monitoring system to date.
The integrated system will be the first in the world to offer surface, sub-surface and geospatial monitoring in a single package, greatly simplifying contracting and deployment.
It will exploit the capabilities of Worldsensing’s Loadsensing IoT-based wireless monitoring system to reduce the cost and delay associated with traditional wired or manually read sensor networks.
The joint solution will simplify data management using HxGN GeoMonitoring Hub integrated visualisation and analysis platform, delivered through IDS GeoRadar. Mining companies, thanks to the integration of Worldsensing and IDS GeoRadar technologies, will have for the first time a single interface to a monitoring system, which now includes a wide range of wirelessly connected geotechnical and environmental sensors in addition to radar, total stations, GNSS and satellite InSAR.
“As leaders in the IoT remote monitoring space, Worldsensing invests in making Loadsensing technology compatible not only with various sensors but also with third-party software, such as HxGN GeoMonitoring Hub by IDS GeoRadar,” said Bernat Trias, Worldsensing’s director of products.
Alberto Bicci, IDS GeoRadar president, commented: “IDS GeoRadar is committed to helping customers put their data to work and we are delighted to present this software knowing that it will positively influence the mining world for years to come.”
