The project involves the development of a machinery capable of conducting real time sorting of higher-grade rocks, using a series of modules that prepare the mineral coming from the concentrator’s first stage. This mineral can then be correctly analyzed by a specialized vision system that with the use of an algorithm, will allow the processor to detect rocks containing a higher grade mineral so these ones can later be separated, thus resulting in a final product with a higher mineral concentration.

The equipment allows detecting events related to a person’s fatigue, thus anticipating the moment when a driver will fall asleep or shows signs of tiredness, which will generate a visual and audible alert. It is possible to detect in real time, a driver´s condition by means of a fatigue index shown on the equipment screen, in addition to a historical condition index collected throughout a driver’s shift.

This project seeks to improve the quality of real time information of the condition of tires by means of an inbuilt strain monitoring system. This way, punctures and small tire failures can be detected in a timely manner, and maintenance can be scheduled accordingly. This information is relevant in economic terms since well-informed actions can be taken to resolve a critical component like it is the safety of operators in the case of a tire bursting, which could be life threatening. Our system is based on the incorporation of ferromagnetic micro threads inside the tire’s rubber. The magnetic properties of the micro threads are a function of the strain to which they are being subjected, thus, we can know the strain status inside the tire when we measure the scattering of microwaves. This transforms the rubber into an intelligent material or metamaterial. This is a FONDEF financed project. .

The project´s main objective is getting real time values of Radon gas concentration in the environment through the measurement of alfa particle emission, generated by the decay of the gas. Albeit, in the national context there aren’t regulations over the presence of Radon gas, more developed countries already are legislating over the matter, product of new researches carried out in United States and United Kingdom, where a link between the inhalation of this gas and lung cancer has been shown, consequently the prototype is intended to be a key piece for future studies on the subject..

Device specialized in the detection of the radioactive gas Radon, for the possible forecast of rock fractures and seismic movements.

The main function of the nuclear densitometer is to obtain an approximation of the density of a sample, depending on how gamma radiation flux lessens when it goes through it, to get the difference of the gamma ray flux that exists between the one that went through the sample (decreasing its intensity) and the one returning to the source. In Mining´s particular case, to which this product is aiming at, it will be used to measure the density of a material flux circulating inside a pipe, and around which the nuclear densitometer will be installed.

Detector and software that captures and analyzes mineral sample data through a nuclear detection method.

Project Sorting consists of the development of a mechanical system based on vision sensors capable of separating and classifying different kinds of minerals according to their composition, generating a pre-selection of the mineral that will go on with the subsequent stages of the process. This project aims to generate savings for the mining industry by avoiding the entry of “low law” minerals to the following production stages, which will also be reflected in a usage decrease of other substances like water and sulfuric acid.

Technological equipment for the classification of minerals based on varying sensors, with the purpose of improving the efficiency of the mining process and avoiding sterile mineral.
