Block model reconstruction using truck fleet management system data

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Global positioning system based fleet management systems are becoming ubiquitous among contemporary surface mines. The technology continues to improve in areas such as wireless bandwidth, management features and data generation. The secondary use of such data, beyond fleet management, is likely to come from improved engineering techniques. This paper describes the development and testing of a materials tracking system at the block model level. The objective is to provide mine planners with information to design a rehandle plan if the material dumped earlier becomes economic. The ultimate objective is to facilitate a merging of the mine block model and the destination block model to generate a multipit optimisation.
