“Our integration of autonomous haulage systems are setting the bar for the next generation of mining and our investment in Immersive Technologies’ training solutions will pave the way for the safest and most productive operations.”
Advancements in mine automation technology have created many new opportunities for mining companies to increase their productivity, reduce cost and increase safety.
Along with these new opportunities have come new challenges. A major challenge in the adoption of automation is people, or more specifically the re-shaping of a mining operation’s workforce to thinking and working differently. This is a key obstacle in the path of successful deployment and operation of autonomous mining systems.
The introduction of autonomous operations requires thorough procedural training and assessment, with a number of ‘what if’ scenarios introduced to ensure mastery of the new methods of operation.
Immersive Technologies’ blended learning solution addresses this need while mitigating risk and assisting in the realization of the full potential of the new automation technology.
Our autonomous mining training solution blends computer based training, classroom and simulator training to deliver a high level of training effectiveness and consistent learning outcomes.
