Enabling the Digital Mine of the Future through autonomous technology

Data capture in the mining industry has been exponentially evolving over the last 10 years. We are capturing data at an increased resolution and accuracy. Rich information can be at ever-shorter intervals of time, enabling live modelling and dynamic planning that is continuously adapting to achieve business objectives. Automating the process to capture spatial data not only reduces the risk and workload for personnel, it also enables increased consistency, speed, and frequency. 
This presentation will provide insight into how autonomous data capture technology could fundamentally change the way mines are planned and operated - imagining a digital mine of the future that could be fully mapped in a day and monitored in real-time. 

Drew Larsen
Director of Business Development
ASI Mining

Improving safety, increasing the utilization of machine availability, and increasing overall productivity of mining assets such as haul trucks and other mining machinery.

Drew will explain the challenges, benefits, and considerations of deploying autonomous technology in open pit mining operations and explain key differences between OEM automation programs vs independent or OEM agnostic suppliers.

JT VonLunen
RMUS - Rocky Mountain Unmanned Systems

Robodog and Digital Twins

Along with a live demonstration of the Boston Dynamics SPOT robot, JT VonLunen will present on Spot's application for the mining industry. He will also show off the Emesent Hovermap, a SLAM lidar-based technology to create digital point clouds and operate drones autonomously.
