DMC at the XXV Lower Silesian Festival of Knowledge

On September 16-21, the 25th Lower Silesian Festival of Knowledge took place at the Wrocław University of Science and Technology. DMC had the pleasure of hosting 163 participants from primary and technical schools. After the presentation of the DMC team, the AMICOS, ECHO, VOT3D, BrineRIS, and MEITIM projects were shown. The lecturers showed the main goals of the projects, assumptions, and results. There were also roll-ups presenting the most important information about the projects. Each project aroused great interest from the audience. At the end of the presentation, the students had the opportunity to control a robot from the AMICOS project, take pictures with a thermal imaging camera and see a physical map displayed in the sand.

Lower-Silesian Festival of Knowledge with DMC

And once again DMC organised a worshop on digitisation and robotics in mining for university-, school-students, and others interested in innovations in the raw materials sector. For three days Adam Wróblewski and I (Mateusz Góralczyk) held virtual meetings to tell our visitors what is happening in our labs, how digital transformation of raw materials industry progresses, what robots, drones, IoT and cloud computing has to do with mining – all in the form of case-studies from AMICOS, SafeMe4Mine, OPMO, MEITIM, and MOIRA.

Some of the fascinating topics undertaken during our meetings were: how smart apps will help inspectors to ensure productivity and safety in open-pit, and underground mines, how a 3D model of a belt conveyor or an underground corridor can be created with the help of a drone carrying a digital camera or LIDAR, how we can use remotely controlled robots to identify damages of mechanical components, or to find a human in case of emergency.
