Motion Metrics International Advanced Monitoring Solutions for Mining Sites
Motion Metrics specializes in advanced monitoring solutions to improve safety, efficiency and productivity in mining. With over 15 years of experience perfecting rugged machine vision and sensor-based solutions, we apply artificial intelligence and deep learning techniques to deliver exceptional results.
Monitoring solutions for mine sites
Motion Metrics offers innovative solutions with a focus on safety and cost-effectiveness. Its products perform missing tooth detection, tooth wear monitoring, rock fragmentation analysis, payload monitoring and proximity detection to prevent site accidents, minimize machine downtime and ensure mines efficiency.
Motion Metrics products include ShovelMetrics™ and LoaderMetrics™ systems for monitoring mining machinery, as well as the new hand-held PortaMetrics™ device for on-site fragmentation analysis. All of these solutions are designed to seamlessly integrate with the MetricsManager™ Pro data centralization system, which utilizes the cloud to allow mine managers to analyze all the data collected by Motion Metrics equipment.
Shovel monitoring systems
Our signature ShovelMetrics™ shovel monitoring system uses advanced imaging to detect missing shovel teeth and monitor tooth wear while also offering in-bucket fragmentation analysis, a patented blind spot detection module, and payload monitoring for hydraulic shovels.
LoaderMetrics™ also monitors bucket teeth using a specially designed thermal camera, while also providing blind spot surveillance to help prevent dangerous collisions and costly equipment damage. ShovelMetrics™ and LoaderMetrics™ are designed to maximize the amount of useful data collected by mining machinery while minimizing safety hazards, equipment damage, and machine down time.
Portable fragmentation anaylsis tools
The latest addition, PortaMetrics™, is a ‘point and shoot’ portable tablet for on-the-spot fragmentation analysis. It measures everything from rock size distribution to slope without the need for any reference objects.
PortaMetrics™ allows users to safely capture, process, and manually alter images in any environment. It works by integrating three high-resolution cameras into one handheld device, capturing and interpreting 3D images of any bench face, stockpile or quarry.
ShovelMetrics™, LoaderMetrics™, and PortaMetrics™ are designed to integrate with MetricsManager™ Pro.
This cloud-based web application provides a single centralized platform to access all Motion Metrics system data. Customizable dashboards allow mine personnel and support specialists to easily monitor the health of each Motion Metrics device. With laptop, tablet and smartphone compatibility, detailed equipment productivity reports can be easily generated.
MetricsManager™ Pro provides real-time equipment status updates, tooth wear prediction reports, shovel productivity reports, and bucket-based rock fragmentation analysis.

Products and Services
LoaderMetrics™ is a missing tooth detection and blind spot reduction system for all loader types. It has been designed to the highest shock and vibration standards and uses thermal imaging technology to overcome poor lighting and weather conditions.
MetricsManager™ Pro unifies individual equipment data to a single centralized web-based platform. Mining personnel can access overall equipment summaries, in-depth performance reports and equipment activity logs from anywhere.
A patent-pending portable tablet that uses stereoscopic 3D imaging and powerful embedded processing to provide accurate fragmentation information and instantaneous slope measurement in a matter of seconds, without the need for any reference scaling object.
ShovelMetrics™ provides a complete suite of monitoring solutions for mining shovels and excavators. With its diverse range of solutions, it allows operators to focus their energy on providing better results for the mine.
Fast Rock Segmentation: Using Artificial Intelligence to Approach Human-Level Accuracy
Image-based rock fragmentation sensing in mining and quarry applications includes an important rock boundary delineation step, which is commonly referred to as rock segmentation. This article presents a novel approach to solve this problem, using artificial intelligence.
