Two major technology solutions providers have joined forces to deliver advanced data visualisation in 3D and virtual reality to the mining industry.
Mining technology developer Maptek and experts in augmented reality LlamaZOO have entered into a collaborative partnership to bring MineLife VR.
MineLife VR fuses complex geospatial and mine planning data with IoT data into an interactive, life-sized virtual replica of the planned, current, and future states of a mine site.
‘At Maptek we’re all about building on our legacy of innovative approaches to how customers interact with their technical and operational mine models,’ said Maptek Core Technologies Product Manager Chris Green.
Imagine viewing live data, such as trucks and shovels, loaded train cars and material stockpiles, in real-time. Displaying real-time grade control data over scheduling activities provides critical information in context,’ added Green.
‘Live and interactive simulation of scenarios via a digital twin of the real mining environment can provide surprising insights. Virtually a risk-free mode for decision-making
As award winning developers, LlamaZOO leverages developing and creating compelling, interactive 3D experiences from the gaming industry to solve real-world problems for innovative companies.
‘Users can explore an entire operation from source to port or facility, see hypothetical scenarios and real-time data, create a variety of presentation media such as 360-degree images, flight paths and export these to other more traditional media access points such as web,’ said LlamaZOO CEO, Charles Lavigne.
