Worldsensing and IDS GeoRadar, a Hexagon company, partnered to launch what they described as a comprehensive mine safety monitoring system. The integrated system will be the first in the world to offer surface, subsurface and geospatial monitoring in a single package, greatly simplifying contracting and deployment, the latter reported.

The system will use Worldsensing’s Loadsensing IoT-based wireless monitoring system. It will also use Hexagon’s HxGN Geomonitoring Hub for integrated visualization and analysis, delivered through IDS GeoRadar. Combined, the solutions offer a single interface to a monitoring system that employs a range of wireless sensors, radar, GNSS and more.

GeoRadar said the solution reflects the company’s commitment to helping customers best use their data. “It will positively influence the mining world for years to come,” IDS GeoRadar President Alberto Bicci said.
