A large range of underground mining equipment makes use of compliant hydraulic arms for tasks such as rock-bolting, rock breaking, explosive charging and shotcreting. This paper describes a laboratory model electo-hydraulic manipulator which is used to prototype novel control and sensing techniques. The research is aimed at improving the safety and productivity of these mining tasks through automation, in particular the application of closed-loop visual positioning of the machine's end-effector.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® 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 the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
