Robotic and tele-operated mining equipment as part of the Intelligent Mine technology
The future of mining is in automation of the equipment. Today, the world’s leading companies are exploiting autonomous technologies in mining enterprises, thus gradually transforming the operational processes into fundamentally new optimization opportunities.
One of the key innovations nowadays is the Intelligent Mine — digital technologies for mining aimed to create a fully robotic mining enterprise. An important element of the Intelligent Mine is the robotic and tele-operated mining equipment: autonomous dump trucks and drilling rigs, intelligent tele-operated excavators, bulldozers and loaders. All tele-operated mining equipment is constantly being autonomously trained, so as its use increases, the number of autonomous operations grows.
The use of robotic and tele-operated mining equipment allows to work in harsh mining conditions, where manual operation by people is significantly difficult or impossible. The result is the ability to work 24/7 and significantly improve the efficiency and safety of the enterprise.
