AMI - Acoustic Mapper and Isolator
On mining sites, there exists 1000's of different equipment types, each with unique acoustic signatures. An experienced engineer/technician can simply listen to equipment to determine if there is a potential fault. The issue is however, is that the resource industry is transitioning to unmanned operations. The question is then raised, how can we continue to use acoustics to monitor the condition of plant equipment. The obvious answer is to use microphones, however it is very difficult to isolate individual sound equipment in noisy plant environments.
