RIGID ROBOTICS adds to RIGIDprecision platform with new shovel operator app

RIGID ROBOTICS is set to officially unveil the PRECISION DIG-2-DESIGN™ on the first day of MINExpo 2021 in Las Vegas, Nevada, today.

PRECISION DIG-2-DESIGN is an open-pit digging assistance and real-time plan compliance application that enables “single path mining” and precision execution of mine plans, according to the company. The application visually guides the shovel operator through a dig block in real time, ensuring the operator stays within grade and dig limits with a 200 mm accuracy.

The PRECISION DIG-2-DESIGN is just one application in the suite of applications available on RIGIDprecision™ platform – a unified hardware/software platform that enables mine sites to achieve precision mining in a piece-wise, scalable and integrated fashion, according to the company.

RIGID ROBOTICS unveiled the RIGIDprecision platform earlier this year after launching the innovation in early 2020 and successfully completing field pilots in western Canada.

“We’re excited to coordinate the introduction of our latest application with MINExpo 2021”, CEO, Mehran Motamed, said.

“The release of PRECISION DIG-2-DESIGN application at this event gives our partners and clients the opportunity to see the application in action and talk to our experts about how RIGIDprecision platform can enable their digital vision.”

MINExpo 2021 runs from September 13-15 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
