NEW Applications

With increasing demand for mineral resources and pressure to exploit existing assets in more efficient ways, careful survey and data analysis of mines for safety and viability can yield huge gains.

A rugged 8-channel, high-definition video recording system, mounted on a UGV provides all round, detailed visual coverage. Such a recorder, built using 8 StreamCorder-HD-SDI modules is able to continuously record high definition video streams to per-channel local solid state storage. Once the survey system has been recovered the video data can be retrieved over Ethernet and analysed. The distributed nature of the storage, along with the overlap of the cameras, is a major advantage in providing data redundancy.

A separate real-time video feedback loop for remotely driving the UGV is implemented using a H264ULL-ENCODER/H264ULL-DECODER set.
