With a view to decarbonization, mines are also increasingly looking to invest in battery/electric vehicles
LONDON, June 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Technology adoption is continuing across the global mining sector with rising degrees of investment in areas such as predictive maintenance, planning software, and communications systems. The high priorities for investment over the coming two years include safety technologies such as collision avoidance and fatigue detection, as well as remotely controlled vehicles, which reduce risk by removing workers from potentially hazardous situations.
The Global Mine-Site Technology Adoption Survey Report offered by GlobalData Plc analyses the results of interviews with key personnel at over 130 operating mines across the globe. The survey also examines trends in the uptake of 13 technologies at the mine site, spanning mine management software, predictive maintenance, drones, autonomous vehicles, collision avoidance, wearables, remote control vehicles, and more. The report also identifies intentions to invest in the next two years and compares results by region, mine type, and company type.
