Theme: Avoiding catastrophic failure: monitoring and management of information to predict failures

Project title: Advance tailings dams risk management system based on IoT

Research team:

Offerings to sponsors:

The proposal simplifies the monitoring and maintenance processes for tailings dams. It creates an intelligent monitoring and operational management framework to automatically collect multiple sources of data and calculate the safety factor in real time.


The proposal is an end-to-end solution for tailing dams monitoring composed by geotechnical and structural sensors, connected IoT devices and software tools for data management and analytics. The system will allow end users to automatically collect information, integrate, and combine them with additional sources of data (inSAR, GB-SAR, total station, etc.) and calculate the safety factor exploiting complex mathematical model to anticipate and avoid failures.
