BPN738: Sensor Instrumentation to Improve Safety of U.S. Underground Coal Mines

Project ID BPN738
Website
Start Date Fri 2014-Jan-31 16:32:28
Last Updated Tue 2014-Feb-04 13:55:55
Abstract Coal mining is recognized as a dangerous undertaking. Explosions of gases that may exist underground (such as methane) and of fine coal dust mixed with air are well-known hazards, in addition to which are unexpected structural collapses. This project is aimed at creating real-time sensors to determine the "inertness" of the mine atmosphere and communication of the information from inside the mine to safety personnel.
