Swedish miner LKAB is one of the companies leading the development of the digitalised mine. In Konsuln, LKAB’s test mine in Kiruna, experiments are underway to, among other things, develop our existing control rooms, but also making the control environments available on mobile devices. In 2021, initial field tests of the new control environment were carried out, which, in addition to making information more accessible, is also built to provide a good user experience. It should be easy, and preferably also fun, to both learn and use the work tools. A decentralised control environment can provide a better overview of the business, but also increases the possibilities for better collaboration with internal and external employees. The aim is to strengthen the ability of those working in the mine to plan and make the right decisions at the right time, while using resources smarter. The first tests took just over a year to prepare and touched on three areas:Low-resolution positioning of people using wifi and mobile phonesVisualisation of values from gas sensorsMicrosoft Teams as a collaboration tool, for example through chat functions and messaging Visualisations of sensor values and positions are important both for planning operations and ensuring safety in the event of accidents and other incidents. Through a digital tool that shows sensor values and how many people are in an area, the work can become more effective. The LKAB developed Simulation Mine Idea Test Environment tool visualises the Konsuln test mine in both two- and three-dimensional views.
