Abstract

The placement of mine-monitoring system sensors, or transducers, requires considerable planning and forethought so that the potential benefits of mine monitoring can be realized. The intended use of the monitored data will often dictate specific locations for sensors, although in many cases technical constraints, imposed by sensor or measured characteristics, will affect the choice of locations. Some of the factors and considerations that should be examined prior to sensor installation are presented. Some proposed decision-making procedures to help the system designer select appropriate locations are given. The conclusion is a description of forthcoming in-mine experimental programs that will be used to learn more about sensor location procedures and to further evaluate the recommendations given here.
