Penguin has extensive experience in applying automated systems to mining.  This work includes:

  • Site Assessment Studies
    • Determine the particular mine’s technology application
  • Technology Roadmap development for the mines
  • Assessment of current technology mine plans vs potential automated mine plans to determine Cost/Benefit
  • Full Automated Mine Design services
    • Scoping
    • Pre-feasibility
    • Feasibility
    • Detailed Implementation Studies

 Environment Inspections & Geospatial Mapping 

  • Photos
  • Videos
  • 3-D mapping
  • Precise co-ordinate reported on surface, underground & underwater
  • Works in GPS & GPS-Denied areas
  • Thermo imaging systems
  • Air quality measurement
  • Fitting of any sensors for additional measurement

All these can fit on our teleoperated robot platform to support data gathering on-line and recorded.  Our robots can travel large distances on surface and in confined GPS or GPS-denied spaces to perform this work.

 Project Management 

  • Setup, implement, train and walk away
  • Setup implement with ongoing management
  • Tele-contracting of robot operation

 Custom Robots & Software Design 

We provide telerobotic applications for the following industries:

  • Mining
  • Construction
  • Exploration
  • Security – Oil & Gas Industries
  • Military & Law Enforcement
  • Industrial, Institutional & Government
  • Farming
  • Sewer, Water & Other Pipelines

 Search & Rescue 

  • Our robots can go places when it is too dangerous for humans to enter
  • We can search underwater or underground, return video to the command centre
  • Precise GPS or GPS-denied co-ordinates reported back
  • Test an environment for air quality hazards
  • Deliver supplies

 Safety & Security 

  • Our robots can transmit video or images to a command centre
  • Our robots could detonate a suspicious package
  • Our robots could blow a door open, enter & report what’s inside
  • etc etc

Some Services We Can Perform

One of our robots recently neutralized some undetonated explosives and cleared a blockage in a mine in Alberta because it was too dangerous for humans to enter.
