From Idea to Prototype on Resource Challenges in just a Weekend
This competition has finished.
Eliminate unplanned outages of the ore crusher chutes due to blockages. Chute to Kill has proposed a solution for directly measuring how blocked a chute is by adding instrumentation directly to the chute. Three sets of sensors neatly complement each other: a camera at the top of the chute, a set of load cells on the mounting points of the chute and an industrial microphone. The camera serves to give the operators a live feed of what is happening in the chute at any time.
