James Jobling Purser BEng PhD ACSM
On completion of his undergraduate degree James sought funding to develop a remote surveying vehicle for surveying in hazardous areas of the mining industry. This project was carried out for his PhD from 2003 to 2008. Jobling Purser RSV LLP was set up in December 2007 to exploit the benefits of the research being conducted, during his PhD.
Some of the skills James has built up over this period include; product development, mechanical design, 3D Modelling, Laser Scanning and Engineering Surveying.
James has travelled to many mining operations around the world to gain an understanding of how the Remote Surveying Vehicle could help improve efficiency and safety in underground operations. Some of the countries visited include; Australia, New Zealand, Finland, Chile, South Africa and Spain.
