Dragline swing automation
Winstanley, Graeme J., Corke, Peter I., & Roberts, Jonathan M. (1997) Dragline swing automation. In Proceedings of the 1997 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA 1997), IEEE, Albuquerque, New Mexico, The United States of America, pp. 1827-1832.
Draglines are very large machines that are used to remove overburden in open-cut coal mines. This paper outlines the design of a computer control system to implement an automated swing cycle on a production dragline. Subsystems and sensors have been developed to satisfy the constraints imposed by the task, the harsh operating environment and the mine's production requirements.
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.
