Tools and business models for collaborative collection and management of system data

The expected lifetime of mobile rock crushers is 20-30 years.  During this time, they may have undergone several undocumented modifications. The demonstrator presented a new upgrade service based on in-situ 3D scanning of machine condition and augmented reality applications for upgrade design in collacoration with customers and end users.


  • Tools and processes for collection of system geometry data in the field based on photogrammetric scanning
  • Visualisation of upgrade designs based on Augmented and Virtual Reality
  • Modular noise encapsulation upgrade
  • Business model scenario for upgrade delivery

Benefits, impact, opportunities

  • Enhanced system data through fast and low-cost on-site scanning
  • Improved communication through in-situ visualisation of design solutions
  • Streamlined upgrade delivery process reduce costs and saves time.
  • New business opportunities with modular system upgrades – increased demand expected within next 3-5 years
