Mining operations normally run for 24 hours a day, year after year and unplanned downtime – whether due to an environmental concern, a safety issue or equipment failure – could result in significant output deficits, financial losses, and prolonged business disruptions. This week’s Blog examines how intelligent machine vision is changing the way we look at mines.
Who’s watching when you aren’t? AI-powered machine vision – enhancing remote monitoring and real-time pipeline leak detection in metals mining
An undetected pipeline leak has the potential to endanger workers, damage local ecosystems beyond rehabilitation, contaminate drinking water supply, and leave community livelihoods in ruins, as well as cost mining companies millions of dollars in damages. This week’s Blog takes a look at Canadian software company, IntelliView Technologies, whose innovation takes video and image analysis to new heights through the coalescence of leak analyzing video analytic artificial intelligence with dual sensor techniques.
