GNSS tracking at Asbestos open pit
The open-pit is situated next to Asbest, the city of the same name as the mining mineral. The sizes of the open pit are 11 km length, 2,5 km width, 350 m depth.
HIVE interface helps to track a GNSS receiver used at the open-pit mining.
The user gets the following primary information about connection:
- reference station name used for positioning mount point name;
- amount of traffic used;
- timeframes of work.
...and particular tracking point on the graph:
- time (UTC format);
- solution type (color on the map: Fixed RTK – green, Float RTK – yellow, DGPS – orange, autonomous – red);
- length between the tracking point and a reference station;
- point’s coordinates (WGS-84).
GNSS tracking improves management at a mine by:
- Quickly locating specific vehicles
- Track valuable assets (generators, mixers, trailers)
- Reducing wasted time
- Identify idle items or speeding vehicles.
- Alarm operator on speed, idle, and location violations.
- Enforcing work-zones.
- Reduce theft.
- Log all vehicle activity to a database for later analysis, replay, or reporting.
- Create daily, weekly, and monthly vehicle usage reports.
