ThingWave in Sweden and AMS Solutions in Finland have started a collaboration with the MINE.THE.GAP initiative from the European Union.
This project, called DIGIROCK, is about new methods for sensing rock properties in underground mines and providing analytics for predicting failures before they occur. The DIGIROCK project proposal aims to develop an early warning system for underground mining. The goal is to implement a first proof-of-concept solution for both real-time monitoring of rock bolts, and advanced analytics with predictions of future rock deformations. The proposed technology can both save lives, mitigate working environment hazards and increase productivity. At the end of the project, the aim is to deliver an IoT solution for bolt monitoring and a Cloud-based solution that can send maintenance reports and alerts to mining companies.
In the DIGIROCK project, ThingWave will contribute with advanced IoT solutions for rock deformation sensing, and AMS will provide their patent-pending rock stress analytics algorithms for predicting failures before they happen.
