Abstract
The tasks of autonomous face navigation for a continuous mining machine and the navigational information necessary to perform these tasks are discussed. A proposed solution is presented, including the employment of a mobile control structure to serve as a reference in the face area, of laser-based optical scanning units and retroreflective targets to determine the machine's position relative to the reference, and of a gyroscope to maintain a short-term knowledge of heading of the machine. An algorithm for fusion of the laser system's data is outlined. Future work on the navigational control software is discussed.
