NTIS: PB/249-298 Available for Reference At Bureau Libraries :56 pages
An assessment of the data flow requirements in a postulated remote supervisory controlled continuous underground coal mining system is presented. The system described consists of a combination miner- bolter and mobile bridge carrier conveyors extending to the section panel belt. The control system envisioned is comprised of a remote control and display terminal within sight of the rear of the miner- bolter and a second such terminal at a remote location in the mine or on the surface. A computer in the section processes control commands and machine responses. Data communications between the controlled machinery and the remote control and display terminals passes through the section computer.
