EMESRT Webinars 6 May 2021

The ACARP C26028 PDS Validation Framework webinars held on 6 May 2021 were attended by 74 individuals from around the globe. The Q&A session incited interesting questions and generated thought-provoking considerations on what, if any, the next steps might look like.

Project Aim

The project aim was to deliver a standardised, scientific, and objective testing guidelines that have been industry verified and utilises the best components of the Mining3 body of work, and the UP testing procedure. There is no current rigorous method of verifying that the statement of intent of proximity detection devices reflects the actuality of the system performance once implemented. These guidelines will provide a path for mine sites and third party testers to engage with the PDS suppliers to mature the development of PDS units towards a higher standard.
