Alem, L and Tecchia, F and Huang, W, Remote tele-assistance system for maintenance operators in mines, Proceedings of the 11th Underground Coal Operators' Conference, 10-11 February 2011, Wollongong, Australia, pp. 171-177. (2011) [Non Refereed Conference Paper]

Complex technologies such as fully automated and semi-automated equipment and teleoperated machines are being introduced to improve productivity in mines. Consequently, the maintenance and operation of these complex machines is becoming an issue. There is a growing interest in industry in the use and development of technologies to support the collaboration between a local worker and a remote helper to deliver expertise to guide the local worker in undertaking maintenance and other activities. The productivity of the future mine relies on the effective delivery, of remote guidance. ReMoTe (Remote Mobile Tele-assistance), a mobile augmented reality system for remote guiding, has been developed at CSIRO as part of the work in the Transforming the Future Mine Theme.
