This project set out to demonstrate the Numbat to potential end users, so as to develop informed views about its future worth.
The Numbat is a high profile research project and as such the Coal Industry needed to demonstrate its ability to thoroughly and objectively review the merits of the machine. The process of demonstration, review and informed debate has worked well for the Numbat project.
The key functionalities needed to be clear (virtually a role description for a machine) to all concerned, why does this device exist? The demonstrations attempted to focus on and magnify the key functionalities.
It can be concluded that the demonstrations played an appropriate and constructive part in the process of taking the Numbat to its next stage of development.
Both the CSIRO and the NSW Mines Rescue Brigade have worked constructively as a team to complete the demonstrations for the Numbat project.
This report provides a very brief description of where the Numbat was demonstrated.
