A wearable system for situational awareness estimation in underground mines
Department of Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Department of Geological and Mining Engineering and Sciences
Underground mining causes injuries and deaths each year all over the world. Among them, human errors such as inappropriate operation are one of the leading causes. The special environment in underground mines may significantly impact situational awareness (SA) of miners. Therefore, in this paper, we develops a wearable system for multiple physiological indicator acquisition for further SA estimation in underground mines. The validation experiment is conducted in a historical underground mine with high humidity level. Multiple physiological signals can be successfully detected in the special environment.
