Rajant Corporation, the provider of Kinetic Mesh® wireless networks, and Brazil-based NEVIL ELETRO MECANICA are, they say, improving safety and efficiency with teleoperation for dozing and heavy equipment.
At MINExpo 2021, September 13-15, in the Las Vegas Convention Center, Rajant and NEVIL will share success stories of deployments in iron ore mines in Brazil and demonstrate the collaborative solution for mining.
“Separating people from the risks and adversities inherent to mine site work areas is paramount,” NEVIL’s CEO, Fabio Neves, says. “Rajant enables reliable and redundant connectivity to NEVIL’s teleoperation software and controls, making possible one operator to control multiple dozers, excavators, loaders, and trucks simultaneously. Mining personnel are conducting heavy equipment operations from remote operation areas with consistency, efficiency, productivity, and safety.”
Rajant VP of Sales, Americas, Sagar Chandra, adds: “Scalability is a shared capability between Rajant and NEVIL. As location landscape, environment and conditions change, Rajant and NEVIL dynamically adapt to flex with customer’s mission-critical teleoperations, autonomy and mobility demands.
“As Rajant’s unique Kinetic Mesh BreadCrumbs with InstaMesh® scale and expand, connectivity strengthens across the mine site. Communication of voice, video, and data is delivered with high bandwidth, low latency and security. One such success story was done by Rajant distributor SiTech Brazil and the simultaneous teleoperation of 17 heavy construction units.”
Deployed in more than 230 of the largest open-pit and underground mines globally, fully mobile V2X/M2M was pioneer by Rajant and has a heritage of maintaining interoperability with existing BreadCrumb wireless nodes with new product releases, the company said.
