Instrumentation and Slope Monitoring Workshop

11 May 2020 | Perth, Western Australia

This ACG workshop will focus on new developments relating to conventional terrestrial monitoring systems such as open pit radars, prisms, laser scanning, and photogrammetry, as well as the integration of the different types of these monitoring systems and their interpretation. Application examples of many companies providing these new technologies include land cover determination, feature extraction, persistent change detection and monitoring, terrain slope characterisation, soils modelling and saturated ground detection. Considerable advances have also been made in remote sensing by using a wide variety of different types of unmanned aerial/piloted vehicles (UAVs), commonly known as drones and also referred to as remotely piloted aircraft (RPA), in monitoring mine sites. This workshop will also explore the advances in the in-ground monitoring of deformation and pore pressure in open pit mining that may be able to provide advance notice of ground movement and changes in pore pressure that might affect slope stability.
