Securing value from your sensor data


As miners and mine suppliers are continuing to improve their operations, more and more sensors are introduced in the workflow.

But how to make sense of all the data presented to us? What insights can be drawn from them? And how trustworthy is the information presented to us?

MathWorks will present a series of weekly one-hour webinars, starting August 12, to describe examples of how mining companies are successfully employing sensor information, and learn best practices on how to leverage these insights.

When companies enter the data analytics space, one of their most valuable assets is the experience of its employees – the subject matter experts.

Employees can tell if a sensor is operating correctly, or if it introduced an error because dirt build-up is causing the signal to flatline with some wobble.

In successful operations, sensor information is used within the context of the system that it monitors.

As such, each webinar showcases an example that uses more than just one sensor and combines this with knowledge about the system, obtained from subject matter experts and math.

Use cases presented cover:

  • Pulp chemistry monitoring
  • Geological exploration
  • Predictive maintenance
  • Developing and using autonomous systems
