Drone safety monitoring systems for Arctic mining (KO5080 DROSAMO)

Programme funding: 38 395 € Total budget: 48 883 € Duration: 01.02.2021 – 31.01.2022

The project deals with safety ensuring of the mining industry workers. Though modern industry is quite developed, accidents, health problems, and sudden challenging situations still occur. These situations can also increase the load on natural environment (negatively affect the state of groundwaters etc.), influence the health of local inhabitants and disturb production while it takes a long time to study what has been happening and how wide is the effect.
The drone technology can give an added value to solve this problem. Since DROSAMO is a micro-project, the upper level aim was to create a concrete base in terms of drone research, understanding the market industrial needs, idea development plans for drones based on the needs, and preliminary drone demonstrations and simulations (To become early adopters of the technology). This concrete base findings acted as a future roadmap for the DROSAMO project towards taking the next leap in providing novel drone technologies and solutions for complex industrial challenges in mines and further to make further steps in the form of a funding application(s) securing larger findings (and thus creating a stable focus of activities for realizing this vision).
