Stopes are an essential part of underground mines and are often dangerous areas that require regular inspections due to the removal of ore and the potential for lose material to fall during operations.
Flyability's Elios 3 drone is the perfect solution for this.
Inspecting stopes with Elios 3
Inspecting a stope with Elios 3 couldn't be easier. Thanks to Elios 3's intuitive controls and stability the pilot can focus more on capturing quality data, including creating a digital twin of the stope with the LiDAR module. The RGB camera and powerful lighting system on Elios 3 means a readable live feed can be monitored and used to further inspect specific areas, allowing major issues to be flagged and addressed faster.
Elios 3's LiDAR unit makes navigating stopes easier by creating a live 3D map of the flown area while tracking the flight path. This means a pilot can backtrack using the live data on the controller's tablet with ease.
Benefits of using Flyability Elios 3
- Improved health and safety - Personal no longer have to enter potentially dangerous slopes, completely removing the potentially for injury.
- Improved operational efficiency - Elios 3 can be in the air within minutes, meaning for faster inspection more often, improving data collection and decision making.
- Higher quality data capture - Thanks to the numerous built-in sensors on Elios 3, and the ability to add third-party sensors, a larger volume of higher quality data can be captured and analysed.
