Underground Mining

From measuring stockpiles, surveying and mapping; to managing safety and security, robotic inspection in the mining industry is growing rapidly. Drones and robots work underground creating accurate site models, assessing risks from a safe distance, and eliminating the need for traditional, less accurate solutions that typically compromise safety or slow operations.

Underground operations have to rely on remote inspection in many of their regular extraction processes, so accuracy is vital. GPS-denied drones capture high-end orthoimages that create extremely realistic digital twin representations of underground geology and features; allowing planning for future expansion, procedural safety and early detection of structural weaknesses.

Robotic inspection offers clear oversight of all operations and improved savings and efficiency, with data being produced quickly and at a fraction of the cost of traditional techniques, resulting in enhanced worker safety and greater ROI.
