ProVision Shovel

With the ProVision® Shovel system, operators are actively guided by high-precision GPS to dig the right material, keep the designed bench grade, respect dig limits, and work within the machine's optimal operating specifications.

The system integrates with mine planning software, providing operators with real-time updates to ore boundaries for improved resource management. The on-board mobile device shows real-time track elevation against plan, helping to reduce bench grade rework and improve drilling performance on subsequent benches. Misdirected loads are identified and prevented through seamless integration with the DISPATCH system. When it comes to improving operator efficiency, saving costs, and ensuring safety, every bucket counts.

The ProVision Shovel system supports hydraulic shovels, cable shovels, and backhoes.

Loader

The ProVision ®Loader system enables loader operators to increase productivity and stick to the mine plan. The system utilizes high-precision GPS to continuously track the true movement of the loader bucket in relation to ore boundaries, designed bench grades, material layers, and slopes.

High-bandwidth wireless communications provide topography and geology to loader operators, and integration with your mine plan enables real-time updates directly to the loader's onboard mobile device. The shared digital terrain model enables shared projects between any ProVision-equipped units—which is especially useful when dozers are working around loaders. Also, onboard proximity/hazard detection helps improve operator safety.

Product Features

  • PTX-B mobile platform, with mobile web browser
  • Block grade identification and load blending
  • Real-time, remote supervision of field operation
  • Tramming in high- and low-precision
  • Proximity/hazard detection
  • Material delineation in polygons or layers
  • Bench grade control
  • Shared digital terrain model
  • Web-based, open-standard reporting
  • Full integration with DISPATCH fleet management system

Dozer

The ProVision® Dozer system streamlines the dozer work process by providing an information link between mine planning, mining operations, and dozer operators in the field. From the onboard mobile device, track and wheel dozer operators are actively guided to: keep the designed bench grade, create ramps to plan, and work within the machine's optimal operating specifications.

Using high-accuracy GPS, the system continuously tracks the true movement of the dozer in relation to its final surface design, keep-out zones, and neighboring equipment. Centralized planning and real-time feedback enable operators to work efficiently without flags, stakes, or other survey activities, reducing rework and eliminating survey costs. Multiple dozers can work on the same project by updating a shared digital terrain model, and central management tools allow you to monitor and report individual dozer/operator performance. Also, onboard proximity/hazard detection helps improve operator safety.

When it comes to improving dozer operator efficiency, saving survey costs, and ensuring safety, don't move it twice.

Product Features

  • PTX-B mobile platform, with mobile web browser
  • Onboard design surfaces to create/maintain benches and ramps
  • Shared digital terrain model
  • Activity-specific KPIs
  • Full integration with DISPATCH fleet management system
  • 3D hazards and work limits with alarms
  • Real-time, remote dozer fleet management
  • Web-based, open-standard reporting
  • OpenGIS format to store geographical data

Drill

The ProVision® Drill system provides continuous guidance to drill operators, improving the productivity of blast-hole drills. Onboard drill hole position navigation and depth dramatically improve blast-hole drill rig efficiency, utilization, and compliance with final blast design goals.

The optional Drill Hole Stratification module allows stratification of drill holes, i.e. rock recognition, enabling you to optimize blast-loading design. The module improves blasting performance and saves up to 15% of explosives. Operators are automatically delivered up-to-date blast designs through seamless integration with third-party mine planning systems.

The Angle Hole Drilling application provides a clearer picture of a hybrid drill pattern and drill hole azimuth, enabling the operator to easily navigate to inclined holes. Operators are better able to identify and execute the drilling process within sub-centimeter accuracy of the planned location.

Product Features

  • PTX-B mobile platform, with mobile web browser
  • Hole position accuracy monitoring
  • Drill hole stratification
  • Web-based, open-standard reporting for drill/operator performance
  • Real-time bit positioning, heading, and inclination
  • Topography-corrected depth
  • Consumables tracking
  • Angle Hole Drilling

Core Benefits

Improved Productivity

ProVision® machine guidance solutions use high-precision GPS, mine planning software information, a wireless radio network, and Modular's rugged PTX-B mobile platform to provide continuous guidance to equipment operators on their path to project completion. Key information on the operator's mobile device includes: a map of the work region, local hazards, the equipment's real-time position, and continuous updates to project requirements. This information enables operators to work safely and efficiently, day or night, and helps your mine achieve lower cost per ton.

Elimination of Manual Surveying and Staking

With ProVision solutions, you can provide geological and geographical data from mine planning systems to an onboard mobile device. This integration virtually eliminates manual survey and staking as well as related costs and safety hazards. Also, rework is minimized as updates to the plan are remotely pushed to the field in real-time. Progress lines and surface updates are automatically recorded by shift or equipment unit, removing the need for physical inspection and enabling simple historical progress reporting.

Consistent Operator Performance

Consistent metrics are crucial to driving continuous improvement. With an extensive web-based reporting system, the ProVision system lets you summarize and uncover trends. Instant key performance indicators (KPIs) allow supervisors to act quickly and give operators comparative feedback.

Better Supervision of Field Operation

It can be difficult to supervise several operators on a project, and sometimes mistakes are made that could have easily been avoided with minor intervention and coaching. With the ProVision office application, supervisors can monitor all equipment at once from the office, avoiding time-consuming trips to the work area. Furthermore, supervisors can remotely view what operators see on their mobile devices in the field, in near real time. There are also tabs that show additional information of interest, such as detailed product or GPS quality indicators. ProVision solutions empower supervisors to take corrective actions that improve mine performance.
