Boliden, Garpenberg, Sweden
Later prototypes of the TILT Ranger were used for scanning an orepass-like zone in Boliden’s mine in Garpenberg. In the first run, the Ranger was first lowered using its ground navigation mechanism (wheels) without flying, while being activated to maneuver – through flight- any obstacles.
The second run was through a powered flight descent. Both runs had the laser scanner active.
Scans were processed through SLAM to create a 3D map/model of the zone. The models were combined to make for a more accurate representation. Furthermore, a 3D print of the zone followed.
Description of zone:
– 25 m (estimated)
– 10 m approx. diameter
Description of system:
– Two TILT Ranger prototypes, equipped with a 3D laser scanner from Clickmox Solutions
