Trimble debuts data visualization module

By |  September 16, 2016

trimble-logoTrimble released its Trimble Connected Mine visual intelligence module with support for mixed-reality technology, including Microsoft HoloLens to provide visual collaboration of mine spatial data.

According to the company, the Trimble Connected Mine module is an integrated and complete view of mine data designed to improve and accelerate operational and strategic decision-making. It provides a secure, live web environment for data to be collected and presented in tables, graphs, dashboards and spatial views. The company adds that the module enables a wide range of administrative and operations data to be connected and consolidated across language, currency, commodity, unit of measure, and time zone and location.

The Mine Visual Intelligence module uses both Microsoft HoloLens and Trimble technology, allowing users to identify exceptions without the need to visit the site.

“Microsoft HoloLens enables companies, designers and creators to work with three-dimensional data in order to bring products and information to life, and Trimble’s implementation of the technology via the Trimble Connected Mine solution is an example of how visualization can generate business benefits such as efficient decision-making, analysis and collaboration,” says Scott Erickson, general manager for Microsoft HoloLens.

In addition, Trimble Connected Mine includes a range of reports, including material, product, delay, budget tracking and KPI (key performance indicator) dashboards that can be personalized for fast deployment.

“Using Trimble Connected Mine Visual Intelligence with Microsoft HoloLens provides an interface to our data that has massive potential,” says Johan Smet, general manager of Trimble Mining. “It enables mining professionals to improve collaboration and communication by visualizing and interacting with high-definition holograms of the mine.”

Known for its GPS technology, Trimble integrates a range of positioning technologies, including GPS, laser, optical and inertial technologies with application software, wireless communications and services to provide commercial solutions.
