Since 2010, Provectus Robotics Solutions (PRS) has been an industry leader in advanced robotic systems design, integration and control. Located in Ottawa, Ontario, PRS delivers robotic control software and services to the aerospace, agricultural, industrial, mining, military and security industries.
For the last decade, PRS and its partners have been supporting the mining industry by delivering vehicle automation, sensor telemetry, and remote control technology. Their robust software packages have helped the mining industry reduce costs, increase worker health and safety, and ultimately increase their bottom line.
The future of mining is dependant on technology that aims to improve the safety and cost effectiveness of their operations. Autonomous vehicle technology has the potential to herald new methods for low-cost, high-output, safe and environmentally responsible mining systems.
Provectus Robotics was able to take full advantage of the NORCAT Underground to install, test and demonstrate its GPS denied unmanned ground vehicle autonomous navigation software in order to demonstrate to potential buyers that its autonomous control systems can successfully operate in an operating mine environment, proving the effectiveness of its technology to potential mining company customers around the world.
“The NORCAT Underground Centre provided us the resources to successfully field test our technology in an operating mine environment to demonstrate its potential impact on the global mining industry. The team has been extremely helpful and knowledgeable, ensuring that our demonstrations were organized and efficient, and made our entire experience simple, safe and easy.”◀︎ Back to Client Stories
