Abstract
This paper introduces a novel technique that combines real-time instrumentation with object tracking by computer vision to produce continuous contour maps from a single sensing device. This method may allow researchers to generate complex maps of mine aerosol distribution and ventilation with common instrumentation and without adding significant complexity to the process of obtaining real-time measurements. The resulting information can be used in stand-alone analyses or can be recombined with video capture to further improve the visualization of measurements. The methodology for this technique and the results from its application in NIOSH research are discussed in this paper.
