Automatic Road Quality Monitoring Module

The KARIER System has a feature for road quality monitoring. The module functions as follows: crossing areas of main roads and dump area envelope are specified on mine layout. Then, based on the history of dump-truck traffic, the System automatically builds up the position of motor roads. Roads are classified as bench roads (from a shovel to the nearest crossing shown on the layout), dump roads (connecting the dump area and the nearest crossing or the outset of a permanent road) and main roads.

Road cutting and characteristics of road carpet unevenness are estimated for each road based on the data from dump-truck on-board hardware (inclinometers, sensors mounted in suspensions).
