Monitoring wall stability in open pit mining
In this scenario, the Senceive wireless monitoring solution was established on site to provide constant, autonomous reporting to mine management and operations teams.
Three optical displacement and triaxial tilt sensors were setup along the crest of the pit wall in the area surrounding the wall cracks. These small cube-shaped sensors include an integrated EDM that was programmed to shoot measurements every 10 minutes. The measurements show any expansion or contraction of the cracks in the pit wall.
