How Mining 4.0 is Improving Safety

The mining industry is applying technologies to improve their productivity with safety in the environment.

FREMONT, CA: Industry 4.0 has offered new possibilities to the sectors that will increase productivity in the workplace, motivating the employees with a better work environment.  If digitalization is utilized appropriately, it can generate appealing jobs in an environment that is safe and controlled. In such situations, the employees can become more creative and increase their productivity, which is the same for the mining industry.

The mining industry has defeated several difficulties with technology, but in the future, only technology will not be enough for them. Therefore, during a technical production procedure, the most critical condition in the future will be to have an experienced workforce that can not only manage the technologies but also overcome the standard-issue, which can be a big challenge. However, digitalization is a technology that can have a combination of these two requirements.

Industry 4.0 will also have an immense effect on the mining industry, and several mines have already taken a step forward in digitalizing the mines. Slowly the mining industry can move forward to attain Industry 4.0 and make the mines fully automated. This technology will not only make the mines advanced but also make it technologically sophisticated ore-processing facilities. In the context of mining, similar to the technique of Industry 4.0 is Mining 4.0. Miners must be experts, and make sure that the product works efficiently.

Moreover, Mining 4.0 is not only limited to the control room instead of the real-time process data, and the status of the machines tracks the miners whenever they move within the mine. The miners can even solve issues by remotely co-operating with the experts, customers in the multi-competent team, operators, and suppliers. Furthermore, it is also possible to conduct production control with the help of a digital twin that too far away from the factory. Here are some of the features that can be seen in the mining industry.

• The super-strength miners can use the biochemical to increase the limb movement, stamina, and strength. 

• The augmented miners utilize augmented reality (AR) for incorporating information from the digital world to the physical ones. They can solve any issues with the help of the instructions from the equipment manufacturers through live video. 

• Virtual reality (VR) is used by the miners for recreating and training risky real-life scenarios. However, VR is already standard among the mining industries, and it is one of the sectors where it sees the maximum of its application.
