How does it work?
Solution Layout: iRoadheader™ is a unique combination of standard indurad radar sensors. The main measurements are high resolution 3D face scans with iDRR™ (indurad DualRangeRadar) sensors updated during the entire cutting process. indurad iSWR (indurad SwitchedReflectorRadar) sensors register all machine movements and visualize both face and machine with cutting arm on a control monitor for remote or even semi-automated coal cutting. A by-product consists in the complete registration of all relevant machine data (drives, motors and encoders). The installation of iRoadheader™ on roadheaders has allowed mining companies to reduce staff in dangerous environments while keeping up or even boosting roadheader performance.
