Congratulations to the winners of MineHack – team “Conveyors of Wisdom” who created a working prototype of a conveyor, along with a laser measure and high definition camera to detect and predict wear patterns in conveyor belts for rips and tears. In the space of 52 hours, 18 teams made up of 116 innovators and entrepreneurs worked on five challenges using our real life data, and pitched their prototype solutions to the five mining and technical judges.
