About Indian Institute of Technology IIT-ISM Dhanbad Post-Doctoral Fellowships

IIT (ISM) has been approved as Govt. of India’s Technology Innovation Hub (TIH) in Mineral Exploration and Mining under the National Mission on Interdisciplinary Cyber-Physical Systems (NM-ICPS). Thus, IIT (ISM) is set to become the nodal centre for ushering Mining 4.0 in India. The major objective of TIH is to develop cyber-physical systems for improved resource discovery, enhanced efficiency, and productivity by integrating Sensors, the Internet of Things, and Artificial Intelligence in Physical Systems. The primary aim here is to improve mineral discovery and product development for Mining 4.0.

 

Post-Doctoral Fellowships(PDFs) are available in TIH for a maximum period of three years, with initial offer for a period of one year extendable on yearly basis on satisfactory progress as certified by the Performance Assessment Committee (PAC). It will enable young Indian researchers to carry out clearly defined research projects in TIH at IIT (ISM) for a maximum period of 36 months subject to availability of funds. The individual availing this fellowship would be called as IIT (ISM) CHANAKYA PD Research Fellow. The selected PDFs will be guided by domain experts of the TIH through the PI/Co-PI. PDFs will be eligible to serve as co-guides along with their mentors for guiding students enrolled for projects/internships/dissertation works in the TIH.

 

The scope of TIH in Mining 4.0 includes, but not limited to, the following Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS):

 

* AI and ML: Use of AI and ML in the Discovery of Mineral Resources and decisionmaking process in mines.

 

* Augmented Reality: Integrating information from the digital system to the physical workplace. A real-time problem-solving system such that problems and solutions can be shared and visualized in real-time.

 

* Virtual Reality: Hardware and Software based simulation and training on reallife mining situations such as simulating mine fire, roof failure, dump slope, etc., Operation and maintenance practices for Heavy Earth Moving Machines etc.

 

* Smart Sensors and Miner’s Tracking Systems: Development of wearable sensors and underground positioning systems (UPS) akin to GPS systems.

 

* Smart and Intelligent Sensing System: Heavy Earth Moving Machineries (HEMM) Real-time condition monitoring & health prediction to improve Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE), Intelligent personal assistance system for miners for interfacing with machines, computers/PDAs and other information system.

 

At present RFID based systems are in place for communicating with
smartphones and other personal devices for reporting purposes.

 

* Robotic Miners System: Robotic based systems and their integration for performing hazardous and repetitive operations in mines such as drilling robots, rescue robots, robotic Loading and Hauling machines, Robotic roof bolters and dressers etc.

 

* Enterprise based Decision Support Systems: Introduction of robust underground hybrid communication system (WIFI/TTE/5G) for interaction between the miners in operations and decision makers with IoT in place.

 

* Mine Data Analytics: Use of Big Data and other related tools for useful information discovery and prediction of various unforeseen events in mines such as prediction of roof fall, dump failure, unsafe mine environment etc.
