Mapping Vertical Infrastructure
Hovermap In Underground Mines
However, the data collection process for inaccessible infrastructure can be hazardous, time-consuming, and has the potential to delay production. Hovermap reduces these risks by removing personnel from hazardous areas and minimizing the time taken to map inaccessible vertical voids. When drone-mounted, Hovermap enables autonomous flight and collision avoidance capability to produce shadowless, high resolution scans of underground voids. Or it can be attached to a tether and lowered into voids too narrow to fly. Mining or geotechnical engineers can quickly and safely inspect orepasses, raises or vents with minimal disruption to production.
