Reference number 2017-02454
Coordinator Nordic Rock Tech Centre AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 2 982 797
Project duration June 2017 - October 2018
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

The project is being implemented to meet the needs of the mining industry in a test bed where systems of systems, systems and functions are being investigated towards a fully automated mining operation. The project works to fulfill this purpose, but has not yet achieved the full purpose, after step 1. However, important basic structures are developed as well as some use cases that will serve to test these structures. An analysis report containing a zero status analysis with mapping of existing projects and initiatives is developed.

Expected results and effects

The result after step 1 of the SMIG project is a detailed description of the type of platform including all substructures that need to be developed as well as a number of usage cases that will serve as pilot tests of an upcoming platform.

Planned approach and implementation

The project is run in a large consortium. In step 1, the Rock Tech Center has been coordinator and the consortium consisted of 21 partners. In step 2, LTU is acting as coordinator and the consortium consists of 16 partners - 3 universities and 13 industry partners.
