Mining in the Minas Gerais area of Brazil is a multi-million dollar industry. The mining firms were trying to improve output, by increasing operations and maximising profit. They decided to increase automation on sites and therefore boost productivity for their clients.
About the project
Navtech Radar’s sensors were installed to improve the efficiency of mining production and reduce disruptions to the operation. Collisions were minimised as the sensor’s long-range detection identified threats before they occurred. The radar sensors were also installed for stock-pile monitoring. The excavator can be positioned more effectively as a result of the radar data, optimising the capacity for the next excavation. This has made production of the mine more efficient.
