The sensors in the underground survey system payloads do indeed provide the opportunity to collect data that may not have been possible otherwise, especially within linear drifts and for remote hazard analysis of rock faces. A panel of experts will discuss how new innovations are changing the approach that can be taken in these underground and indoor environments.
