Real-time data analysis systems can process information that changes quickly, to ensure that your system reflects the world as it currently is, not how it was 20 minutes ago.
This project allows users to monitor the conditions of an open-pit mine in a remote location. Measurements from laser sensors around the top of the mine accurately measure the distance across the opening of the mine at regular intervals, measuring any type of shift that may occur in the land around the mine. These measurements can be used to predict a landslide before it happens, allowing for a timely evacuation of personnel from the mine. Measurements from each sensor are transmitted to a central server, which provides real-time data analysis to any local networked computer.
