The new addition to ISENSE’s project list, MASTERMINE project, was officially launched in a two days event, last week in Spain.
MASTERMINE aims to restructure the various systems of mines, bringing the mining industry on par with Industry 4.0 standards. The project revolves around six distinct axes, focusing on digital transformation (CYBERMINE), autonomous and electric operations (AUTOMINE), safety and stability in critical structures (GEOMINE), environmental sustainability (GREENMINE), building a virtual version of the mines (METAMINE) and increasing community engagement (OURMINE).
Project’s results will be tested and demonstrated in five pilot sites in Europe and one in North Africa.
I-SENSE’s role in the project involves i) the design and construction of an autonomous sorting system for separating ore, ii) the creation of a mesh network within the mines to facilitate IIoT transformation, and iii) the development of a Mixed Reality (MR) tool to allow the visualisation of mines’ digital twins.
Stay tuned to learn more about the project!
