The College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences (CEMPS) at University of Exeter invites applications for a PhD position in the area of remote sensing, automation and machine control.
The successful candidate will be responsible for developing research related to integrating new sensor technologies and 3D mapping processes to aid automation and intelligent mining.
The PhD student will work closely with other members of the research team at Camborne School of Mines of University of Exeter (Penryn Campus, Cornwall).
Main tasks will include:
- Development of machine localization and mapping techniques using multiple remote sensing technologies (LiDAR, photogrammetry and radar).
•Testing the applicability and accuracy of these techniques for automated mining applications both on surface and underground.
•Designing intelligent mining solutions using emerging sensor and data visualization technologies (such as virtual, augmented, mixed reality and serious gaming environments).
This project will investigate, validate and test new sensors, systems and workflows and their applicability for automated and intelligent mining. This project will also undertake research associated with remote characterization and identification of hazards.
