Technology advances in recent years have made it possible for battery-powered wireless communication to thrive in underground mining environments. SMART Geotechnical instruments from Mine Design Technologies, as well as vibrating wire based instruments from many manufacturers can now be monitored in near real time with the MineHop battery-powered network. This paper will discuss the different applications of the MineHop technology, the ease of installation and maintenance, hardware and software specifications, and examples of typical installations.
