The benefits of implementing IoT within the mining sector are clear, adoption has remained slow hindered by the environmental challenges of deployment. Initial attempts at digitization saw the deployment of programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems for monitoring and controlling however, this has proved ineffective due to the lack of interoperability and open standards. Additionally assets move, the environment changes and coupled with limited or unreliable connectivity especially in underground mine sites infrastructure has remained a problem. WiTTRA offers the perfect solution in a single technology deployment.

Target Applications for Mining:

  • Asset tracking
  • Environmental monitoring e.g. gases
  • Waste Management/cost optimization
  • Predictive Maintenance
  •  Equipment utilization
  • Workflow Automation

Top Mining Challenges:

  • Infrastructure implementation
  • Underutilized equipment
  • Misplaced assets - lost time
  • Multi- level and harsh environment
  • Remote locations struggle to pick up        Cellular/GPS signals
  • Ease of Deployment
