Need for IT/OT Integration in Mining to Power Innovation

Organizations continue to invest in core technologies to mitigate the challenges they face. These challenges include depleting grades of ore bodies impacting multifactor productivity, remoteness of new deposits with the lack of infrastructure and skills at the site, deeper underground mining which increases safety risks, etc. An ecosystem of suppliers and research institutions have been working at mitigating many of the challenges by applying innovation and technologies such as sensors, autonomous operations, drones and UAVs, mining simulators etc.

The Mining industry has had a fair share of innovations across field level and operations management controls in the last couple of decades. We’ve seen the emergence of autonomous haulage systems, airborne surveys, larger sized trucks (400 tons), online analyzers and collision detection systems during the boom in mining after World War II.
