Event A flagged location on the belt. The operator has instant access to event images.
Belt segment The stretch of the conveyor between two joins identified by the sequential number, the type of the leading join, the distance from the marker, and its length.
Reference Location Belt location where physical marker is placed. It provides the reference point for the belt metrics. Designates the "start" of the belt.
Belt structure The list of all belt segments.
Absolute distance Distance from the marker to a particular belt location.
Relative distance Distance from the start of the segment to a particular belt location.
Imaging Server Underground computer responsible for capturing and processing of belt images.
User workstation Surface computer with two-monitor configuration used by operator to browse and analyse belt images.
