mXrap is a platform in which apps can be developed. The ACG team and several of our super users develop their own apps as part of their research development or consulting work. Some of these apps under current mXrap Consortium rules all the apps developed under the mXrap support or any research project performed by the ACG team will become available to the mXrap Consortium members.
The following research projects are using mXrap as a technology transfer tool and apps will be developed under the research project for both internal use and for transferring the research outcomes to sponsor sites as useful software:
- Ground Support Systems Optimisation
- Stope Reconciliation
- Contribution à la conception des galeries minières dans le contexte des mines profondes, sous hautes contraintes et soumises à la sismicité
Not all apps are outcomes of research, though. Some apps are developed simply as utilities to make the user’s life easier and to form the components for re-use in other apps.
These apps are also available to the mXrap consortium members.
Many of these apps have been developed over many years, with many of them having roots in the ACG’s Mine Seismicity and Rockburst Risk Management project. These apps can be broadly summarised under the following areas of interest:
