In-Mine Underground Collision Avoidance Information System

Grants and Contracts Details


In-Mine Underground Collision Avoidance Information System This project proposes to use technology developed by SRI International with Mining Engineering for mining machine recognition using a depth camera. This project will expand the technology by adding underground stone equipment to the recognition engine. The recognition of the underground equipment will then be used to display to an equipment operator so that they will be able to avoid collisions. SRI will be the main developer of a system for the identification of equipment and personnel in the underground stone environment developing a recognition engine. UKY will collect data to train the engine from a mine or mines in the vicinity of Lexington, KY. The SRI engine will be tested using data collected by UKY. UKY will take the lead in the development of a front-end to display the information from the SRI-developed engine to a potential equipment operator, with significant input from SRI on the interface with the SRI engine. SRI will develop with assistance from UKY documentation so the sponsor will be able to interface with an executable version of the SRI engine. SRI will participate in the UKY lead demonstration of the system in a working underground stone mine in the vicinity of Lexington, KY.
