3D Mine

 

Pitram 3D Mine is able to track the current position and status of all equipment and personnel using both in-house and third-party tracking systems. For surface mining, a high resolution aerial photo or a CAD/GIS site map can be used as a background reference. For underground mining, the whereabouts of equipment and people can be determined using a 3D layout of the mine.

Overview

Pitram 3D Mine is a stand-alone desktop application which is used to display the current location and status of all on-site equipment units and and personnel. Symbols can be configured to represent different equipment types and personnel roles.

Symbol colours can be customised for a particular site. Equipment, for example, can be colour-coded to show the current cycle status, operating status, loaded material type, or any other equipment-specific attribute. Equipment symbols can also be rotated to reflect their current heading, and a Search function can be used to locate people and equipment.

Pitram 3D Mine goes beyond the display of just equipment and personnel. Colour-coded block models and wireframes representing ore bodies and stock piles, and CAD/GIS layers representing other on-site entities, can be displayed. At any time during the shift, a mine geologist or an engineer can verify the current location of excavators or drills in relation to a block model or a wireframe representing a mine bench, for example.

In surface mines, Pitram Mobile computers obtain equipment positions via a built-in GPS+GLONASS card. These positions are then sent to the Pitram server.

In underground mines, people and equipment are tagged and tracked by a third-party tracking system. Real-time position updates reported by the tracking system are transferred to the Pitram server using one of several Pitram tracking system connectors. 3D Mine is then notified by the Pitram server whenever a tracked object changes its position or its status.
