3D Spatial Environment and Precision GNSS Navigation For Machines

May 4, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Graeme Hooper, Managing Director at GPSat Systems Australia


A back ground journey into the industrial 3D spatial environment and the associated use of precision GNSS navigation for the mining machines will be presented. Examples associated with applications as diverse as truckless mining (eg the Vale S11D in Sth America), precision rail mounted stockpile machines subjected to mechanical skew distortion and rail ground subsidence problems, and automated remote bulk ship loading of ore will be presented. A look at the present and the future of machine 3D spatial navigation for efficient, safe automation and control of machines.


Graduated Electrical Engineering Monash University 1980. Starting as a RF Design Engineer 1981-86 for Andrew Antennas, he then joined Rockwell International 1987 to 1992 working in the USA on military GPS system and equipment development. Since founding GPSat Systems Aust 1993, the company has continuously delivered innovative satellite navigation (GNSS/GPS) equipment, system solutions and technical expertise to Australian regional markets. The company’s dedicated team of professional engineers with broad multidisciplinary skills in electronics, software, geomatics and information technologies, continue to deliver “frontier GNSS navigation projects”, to advance, 3D machine automation, air navigation infrastructure, thoroughbred race horse training, and defence navigation warfare systems to mention a few.
