Digital Vision System (DVS)

Developed in a joint venture with Orica Mining Services , he Digital Vision System (DVS) is a self-contained unit that automatically acquires calibrated, scaled images at user defined periods. These are stored on board and can be downloaded remotely (via wireless networking) for fragmentation assessment.The DVS unit comprises a digital camera with optical zoom, laser rangefinder, global positioning system (GPS), radio modem interfaced to a computer all in an IP65 rated housing.The DVS is installed in extreme environments. To begin with, the shovel on which it is mounted vibrates considerably. Installations have been in places such as Newfoundland in Canada (near the arctic circle), where temperatures regularly drop below -30°C in winter, and outback Queensland, where temperatures often pass 40°C.The third shows the same view but with only three-dimensional information (red being lowest, green in the middle and blue being the highest rocks). The height information in the third image is obtained by determining the disparity between the left and right image of the binocular vision system.Both the 2D and 3D images are used to determine fragmentation, allowing blast efficiency to be assessed.For mining and quarry applications enquiries should be directed through Orica Mining Services .
