Augmented Reality on Longwall Face for Unmanned Mining
An unmanned mining technology for the fully mechanized longwall face automation production is proposed and studied. The essential technology will bring the longwall face production into visualization through the Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) union. Based on the visual theoretical model of the longwall face, the combination of virtual and reality, the real-time interactive and the 3D registration function were realized. The Key technology and Alpha channel are used to the combination of the real long wall face and the virtual user.
