Abstract
This report describes the development of a laser entry alinement sensor for guiding a continuous-mining machine. The history of the design from one using two four-quadrant photodetectors with a servo system to one with an array of optical lens elements and sensors is detailed. Principal design features and the design philosophy are also discussed. The components of the final package (slave laser, master transit, sensor unit, display unit) are described in detail. The results of performance tests on the accuracy of the heading and tracking indications are also presented. Finally, recommendations are made for future work.
