For some underground mine sites, it can be difficult to determine whether or not large pieces of equipment and parts will be able to fit through certain sections of narrow drift. The uGPS Rapid Mapper™ product can help you perform a “will it fit?” analysis quicker and easier than ever before.

What You Need to Know about Performing a “Will it Fit” Analysis

It’s Fast and Easy

To perform an analysis using our technology, all you have to do is install the uGPS Rapid Mapper™system, press record, and drive! The system will log a detailed and accurate 3D point cloud of the area while in motion (at normal vehicle operating speeds). Furthermore, because this technology is extremely easy to use, virtually anyone can use this product and feel confident with the results.

Next, this point cloud data can be used to generate impressive visualizations, such as ‘fly-throughs’ in third party CAD or General Mining Planning (GMP) software.  In addition to the “will it fit?” use case, these data visualizations can be used for a multitude of different scenarios and are a very effective communication tool during meetings or incident investigations.  A picture might be worth a thousand words, but a video is worth so much more!

A Veritable “Jack of all Trades”

ugps rapid mapperuGPS Rapid Mapper™ is the first of its kind in many ways, offering a variety of potential tunnel mapping and surveying uses that simplify and streamline solutions for your mining project. Using a fusion of sensor inputs, including state-of-the-art laser scanning technology, uGPS Rapid Mapper™generates accurate 3D point cloud data from a mobile platform, allowing for large areas to be scanned very rapidly. This functionality creates opportunities for a wide range of mining applications, such as mine planning, shaft/raise inspection, geotechnical control and ventilation monitoring.At Peck Tech Consulting Ltd., one of our main priorities is to make the underground mining process as simplistic, productive, and safe as possible.
