Overview
NREC applied robotic sensors to the development of semi-automated continuous mining machines and other underground mining equipment. Sensors mounted on the mining equipment can accurately measure the machine's position, orientation and motion. These sensors will assist operators standing at a safe distance to precisely control the machine.
