Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The project consisted in improving the reliability and performance of the APEM programmed robots with intrinsic security, which are currently widely used underground. These being used more and more close to building sites, the electrical converters had to be redesigned so that they would resist better the fluctuations of voltage on the network. Performance of the analysis and management of information had also to be improved.

At the end of the project, some new elements are studied and carried out in order to create a new generation of robot implements for the APEM mining machines. The significant improvements brought to the features of the APEM have reached their target. .
