Safety Net for Miners

iPackets International Inc. will use the ARM7 system-on-chip 802.11 wireless technology for its next-generation compact iPMine-M8 810C tracking device, scheduled for market later this year. It promises to deliver a new safety net for miners, both above and below ground, by offering features including sensor processing, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), and video streaming. The technology platform will also provide premium processing power to run the multiple features efficiently.



iPmine, handheld or equipment-mounted, is a real-time two-way wireless communications system that tracks, monitors, and communicates with miners and equipment. Location information is collected and displayed live on one or more monitoring stations against a background of the mine's terrain map. Redundancy makes its operation highly reliable for the harsh mining environment. (www.sensorsmag.com/0806/RDMines)
