IoT – LIDAR
Decipher’s IoT LIDAR technology enables mining teams to monitor unplanned structural movements of earth in near real-time and to be automatically alerted to customer defined exceedances and out-of-compliance issues.
Currently, under safety regulations, unplanned movements of earth are generally classed as high potential incidents which need to be reported and investigated. Light Imaging, Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) technology is the practice of using light or non-visible electromagnetic radiation to detect and measure distance to objects. IoT LiDAR collects data from IoT devices and uses a laser scanner to measure minute movements in structures, building up a topographical model which can be compared to previous data or be programmed to scan continuously, triggering an alert if movement is detected. Working with GlassTerra’s affordable, simple, connected, scalable, cyber secure IOT LIDAR hardware devices, our solution helps users visualise and measure real-time terrain changes such as structural changes of tailings dams at approximately 2000m2/device. Armed with this information, users can then conduct prompt reporting, investigation and mitigation of high potential incidents which can enhance safety, and improve the protection of the environment and stakeholders.
