Smart program monitors miners’ safety

September 08, 2022

A multifunctional security system is being put into operation at the Kayerkansky mine. Thanks to it, the work safety and hazardous areas control are increased.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The smart program allows controlling the personnel location in mine workings and searching for people even in the absence of electricity.

The system operates on the basis of the Mining Dispatcher software and hardware complex – this is the development of a domestic contractor – the Ural Technological Intelligent Systems LLC.

“The objects location is displayed on the mines’ 3D models, which are made in real coordinates. With the help of special beacons in individual lamps, the system determines the worker’s coordinates with two meters accuracy. The personnel movement can be tracked both in real time and recorded using the Playback function”, said the Nornickel Polar Division’s press service.

In addition, mine supervisors can signal an “alarm” to workers or call an employee. And in case of an emergency at the mine, workers can give a signal to the dispatcher. He will see at his workplace who sent the signal and where the employee is. This speeds up the response time to the event.

In addition, the system will give a signal to the dispatcher if the employee has been motionless for a long time.

As part of the system implementation in mines, the data transmission network is being expanded, including Wi-Fi technology. This allows organizing IP radio communication with those who are underground, transmitting video images and other types of data. All this increases the efficiency of mining operations management.

Now the system is being tested, and planned to be launched in September. As part of the project, all the Polar Division mines will be equipped with the worker positioning system. Such a system has already been implemented at the Zapolyarny mine by Medvezhiy Ruchey LLC.

Earlier, This Is Taimyr reported that the Copper plant employees tested three models of exoskeletons. We also told that Nornickel presented three effective developments at the IN’HUB International Competition for Inventions and Technologies.
