We worked with Komatsu to create a 3D visualization of the data feeds that they receive from their Longwall miners.

The aim of this project was to provide the above surface engineers with a visual of what was going on underground.

Using the full CAD models of the machinery we created an accurate simulation of the longwall in operation with both real time and recorded data captured by sensors underground.

Komatsu hope to use this as a tool which over time will allow them to move more operators out of the mines and have them working on the surface therefore reducing the associated risks and minimising costs.
