Designed, developed and powered by GroundProbe, MonitorIQ is the first product launched by Orica Monitor.
MonitorIQ is a data aggregation software that provides users with a holistic visualisation of all sensor data across a mine site for accurate analysis of geotechnical and environmental conditions.
By bringing all sensor data into one platform geotechnical events or changes can be forecast and ongoing trends can be identified.
MonitorIQ aims to bring blasting and geotechnical stability monitoring closer together.
With MonitorIQ, Orica Monitor offers the industry the confidence to safely execute blasts while maintaining the integrity of surrounding pit walls with its integration of GroundProbe’s capabilities alongside BlastIQ and Nitro Consult.
