With the introduction of more Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled devices in mining, monitoring systems need to be able to deliver up-to-date, reliable data for analysis.
Worldsensing's Loadsensing system is used to connect and wirelessly monitor assets at construction and mine sites. It uses long-range, low-power wireless smart nodes and can be configured through a mobile app.
According to the company, in complex projects, like open-pit mining operations, Loadsensing is used to detect and prevent possible risks to structures and infrastructures through real-time monitoring.
The combination of Loadsensing with Trimble's software, Worldsensing CEO and co-founder Ignasi Vilajosana said, will help in reducing risk in challenging construction and mining projects.
Users can now send data wirelessly through Loadsensing, control the measurements, manage and process data, and then analyse the results with the Trimble 4D Control 5.0 software.
This also enables them to receive data from various geotechnical sensors and read data from multiple sensor manufacturers.
"Integration doesn't mean that they can just connect and automatically the data will be read and sent," explained Matthieu Laville, Worldsensing sales director. "A smooth integration means our engineers work closely with our partners to understand their technical requirements and specifications in order for Loadsensing to be compatible with their sensors, system or software."
