Borehole Localization and Detection for Mining (Orica)
Becht, Samantha Duggar, Thomas Emanuel, Blair Iyer, Arjun
Orica is a multinational supplier of mining chemicals and services. The Orica-Olin SCOPE team investigated opportunities for automation of dirty and dangerous tasks associated with the surface mining process, for example the blasting of existing boreholes. Our project is the first step: building an automated proof-of-principle which uses stereo vision to identify holes and moves a laser pointer over the center of each hole.
