Mining’s future looks to be increasingly autonomous but the pace of change necessary to realize the benefits of autonomy depends on many factors: technology and change management, for example.
In a wide-ranging podcast interview with Mining NOW, Hexagon’s Mining CIO, Rob Daw, discusses the technology and culture needed for mining’s autonomous future. In conversation with host Jerrod Downey, Rob shares Hexagon’s perspective on what makes a mine smart and the essentials for digital transformation.
Hexagon is a global leader in digital reality solutions, combining sensor, software and autonomous technologies. The company is putting data to work to boost efficiency, productivity, quality and safety across industrial, manufacturing, infrastructure, public sector, and mobility applications.
For the mining industry, this means a holistic, data-driven approach to integrating, automating, and optimizing critical workflows. From exploration and planning to drill and blast, material movement and survey and monitoring, these workflows are digitally transformed by the Power of One, a life-of-mine smart solution that connects sensors and software, infield apps and cloudware.
In the interview, Rob explains the Power of One as a scalable, platform-agnostic answer to challenges previously addressed by point solutions and multiple vendors. He shares how customers from the pit to the boardroom can be safer, more productive and can make sense of their data in real time.
