Benefits of Geotechnical Modeling with Automated Drones 

Detailed geological knowledge of a mine allows for comprehensive, and detailed analyses to power intelligent decision making, and the successful operation of any mine.

Close visual inspections, and 3D modeling of project areas in a mine provide mining professionals with the necessary data to decide on, design, and prepare for a number of hazard mitigation measures. In open pit mining, detailed geological knowledge is a major, unknown factor, which poses significant risks in mining. In open pit mining, detailed geological knowledge is a major, unknown factor, which poses significant risks in mining. Thus, with better quality and more up-to-date geotechnical data, productivity and safety can be increased, all the way from the exploration phase to mine rehabilitation.

as geological knowledge of a mine improves, so does safety and productivity, and yet generating geotechnical models of a mine is an onerous, tedious, and time-consuming process. Relying on drone operators to provide geotechnical information for a detailed understanding of a mine’s landscape poses many challenges, leaving room for error. Airobotics’ automated system offers mining professionals a tool to collect geotechnical information, which in turn optimizes workflow, makes data easy-to-handle, available on demand, and cost-effective.

By deploying a completely automatic platform, with pre-defined missions and applications, Airobotics’ system collects aerial data, which the system analyzes, providing a clear picture for mining professionals. The topography of pit mines is forever changing, and drones offer a great solution to monitor changes over time. Additionally, utilizing drones for pit monitoring, slope management, and haul road optimization proves to be a more cost-effective method than traditional surveying techniques, and approaches. Access critical information faster and improve operational efficiencies at quarry sites to make better, informed decisions. In a limited amount of time, and at a fraction of the cost, digital models can be generated from aerial data, opening up a host of new opportunities.
