The Mining sector is heading towards automation. The sector has both; the need and the money to drive automation research. Companies need to think about how all mining processes and systems can work automatically together. There exists a range of technologies and techniques that help mine operators get the most out of both; their deposits and their workforce. Trends such as reduced energy, water use and falling grades of ore in the mining industry are driving the need for further development of technology. In a nutshell, companies need to change the way their business models and information systems work to achieve that.
