Unearthed Denver 201722 Sep - 24 Sep
From Idea to Prototype on Resource Challenges in just a Weekend
This competition has finished.
Inspiration: Barrick Gold Corporation, the largest gold mining company in the world. A part of their gold refining process involves manual addition of fuel for roasting the Gold ore. What it does: Roast Automator improves the fuel addition process by coupling a machine learning algorithm and a PID Controller to save $2.5 million a year How we built it: We used Industrial software with Prototyping Applications for Electronics and Web. Accomplishments that we're proud of: The solution is feasible and we hope to implement this at the Strike Gold Plant in Nevada
