Sensor Location Strategy for Minewide Environmental Monitoring.
Proc 21st Int'l Conf safety in Mines Res Inst sydney Australia 1985 Oct; :6 pages
The decision to incorporate a mine monitoring system into a coal mine represents a commitment by management and engineering personnel to improve mine operations through innovative technology. The choice of monitoring transducers requires considerable planning and forethought so that the maximum benefits of whole mine monitoring can be realized. The intended use of the monitored data will often dictate specific locations for transducers, although in many cases technical constraints, imposed by transducers or measurand characteristics, will limit the choice of location. This paper presents some of the factors and considerations that should be examined prior to transducer installations. Some decision making procedures to help the system designer select appropriate locations are proposed. The paper includes a description of in-mine experimental programs being used to learn more about physical factors that influence transducer location and to further evaluate the procedures presented here.
