SSSi QLD 2019


While surveying above ground and accessible environments is a mature and a well-established discipline, mapping harsh and inaccessible areas is still an unsolved problem. Some groups and companies such as Emesent are developing the next-generation technologies that will allow the automation of data collection in those challenging environments through the use of autonomous vehicles and new mapping systems such as Hovermap.

At this event, Dr. Farid Kendoul will present on some of the key challenges and innovations related to the surveying of inaccessible underground environments. Farid will elaborate on some of Emesent’s achievements in this area including the results from deploying these technologies in the latest DARPA Subterranean Challenge.

Date: 18 October 2019 | From 9:10am - 9:45am

Where: Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.

CEO & Co-Founder Stefan Hrabar presents ``Enabling autonomous drone-based LiDAR survey of underground mines``

Saturday, 17th of August, 9:00 AM TO 9:20 AM

There are many areas of underground mines that require regular survey but these areas can be hazardous or inaccessible. Hovermap is a two-in-one intelligent LiDAR mapping payload which allows a drone to explore these areas autonomously while also capturing detailed 3D point clouds. This talk will provide an overview of the Hovermap technology and cover sample use cases for underground mining, including survey of stopes, ore passes, vent rises and drives. It will also cover other survey applications where GPS is not available such as civil tunnelling, under-bridge, indoors etc. The merits and limitations of SLAM-based LiDAR survey will be presented and potential future applications will be discussed.
