Robust sensing for a 3,500 tonne field robot
Roberts, Jonathan M., Pennerath, Frederic, Corke, Peter I., & Winstanley, Graeme J. (1999) Robust sensing for a 3,500 tonne field robot. In Proceedings of the 1999 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA 1999), IEEE, Detroit, The United States of America, pp. 2723-2728.
The mining industry is highly suitable for the application of robotics and automation technology since the work is arduous, dangerous and often repetitive. This paper discusses a robust sensing system developed to find and trade the position of the hoist ropes of a dragline. Draglines are large `walking cranes' used in open-pit coal mining to remove the material covering the coal seam. The rope sensing system developed uses two time-of-flight laser scanners. The finding algorithm uses a novel data association and tracking strategy based on pairing rope data.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
