Long Term Stability Assessment and Monitoring of Flooded Shafts
The main objective of the EU project STAMS is to develop robotic inspection technologies to monitor and assess the stability of flooded shafts over 2 km deep during long periods of time. This objective will be achieved taking periodic and continuous measurements.
For the continuous measures, a sensor network will be installed along the shaft, and a robot for fixing the sensors will be developed. All the changes and measures will be analyzed in real time, and in situ with a software control and analysis system. For the periodic measurements, a Multi-functional Monitoring Module with an ultrasonic profiling and imaging device will be designed.
