Intelligent and unmanned" is the main trend of the development of modern coal mining in my country. The fully mechanized shearer is the main equipment for large-scale coal mining. The measurement before advancing, the straightness of the chute is calculated through the measurement, and the position reference is provided for the subsequent advancing of the chute. At present, the chute straightness measurement equipment for fully mechanized shearers in China mainly relies on imports, and localization is in its infancy. The National Energy Coal Mine Mining Machinery Equipment R&D Center has tested and verified that the product chute straightness measurement accuracy has reached the same level as that of foreign imported products. At present, the research and development system is in the operation test of the underground fully mechanized shearer in Huangling Coal Mine.
