In this episode of HxGN Radio, we explain the progress being made in harmonising hardware and software in the mining industry to automate workflows, optimise haulage and blending, and deliver situational awareness.
In the latest episode of our popular video series, watch how Hexagon is empowering an autonomous future by expanding the limits of innovation across the world.
Recently, mining media have even speculated that the COVID-19 pandemic may actually accelerate autonomous mining. Is the industry ready for this transformational leap or are there other directions to empower a remote workforce?
Noise, distraction, busy traffic and poor visibility will always mean that mining is potentially dangerous but improvements to Hexagon’s collision avoidance system (CAS) continue to minimize those risks.
Technology mitigates many of the risks miners face, including blind spots, fatigue, distraction and slope failure. But can technology protect everyone? What will it take to achieve “zero harm”?
