Connectivity across mining has become a major concern for the mining industry in the current era primarily to enhance the protection of workers working in mines. Connected mining helps to create safer working conditions in the mine. With the help of multi service and secure IP networks, operational efficiency for daily operations can be maintained significantly. Connected mining solutions enable ease in multiple applications such as dispatch, telemetry, safety, voice and video, over a single reliable, secure network. These solutions can be operated through unified, secure access from any device and any location. Key operations undertaken by connected mining solutions include predictive maintenance, digital tailings monitoring, secure mine operations, asset visibility and monitoring, and connected plant.
Predictive maintenance increases equipment reliability and controls maintenance cost with prediction analysis to prevent the resource’s maintenance cost.. Digital tail monitoring controls the onsite costing and augments the safety solutions with in-ground sensor monitors and real time video analytics. Asset visibility and monitoring enables real time visibility into status of operations carried out in a mine on a single screen, enhancing the safety of occupational equipment. With the help of connected plant feature, end-to-end mining operations are carried out at ease with zero down time.
Growing popularity of internet of things (IoT) has significantly augmented the connected mining solutions thereby enabling majority of small players to offer connected mining solutions globally. Being a cost effective solution, the technology is adopted at large number of mining locations. The connected mining solution offers features pertaining to employee’s safety and well-being. Moreover, owing to the impact of occupational health and safety standards, connected mining is widely opted by most of the mining industries. However, lack of skilled labor in the mining industry is one of the restraining factors hindering the market growth. The countries with strong infrastructure growth such as the U.S, Australia, the U.K and others are expected to exhibit high adoption in the coming years.
