The art of mining is to balance safety and productivity. Success today depends on improving both. Integrated solutions are helping to insure this is possible. The newly introduced HxGN Mine VIS, is one such example. HxGN Mine VIS is a vehicle intervention system that detects and prevents collisions by automatically slowing down or even stopping a haul truck if an imminent collision is detected.
There’s something fitting about a conference devoted to potential, hosted by a hotel in the desert that features a lobby resembling the Sistine Chapel and a canal on its second floor. The Venetian in Las Vegas can be a tricky place to navigate, with its Italian plazas, gondolas, pools, pubs, clubs, restaurants, and spa. But you can’t help marveling at the scale of its ambition. More than 3,000 attendees were left feeling the same way after listening to Limitless, Hexagon President and CEO, Ola Rollén’s enthralling keynote at HxGN LIVE this week.
Virtual Reality is a computer-generated simulation of an environment or 3D image, which is not only a source of processing visual information but allows for physical interaction within the space. This combination of visual and kinesthetic information is just one of many innovative ways in which Hexagon Mining is embracing the trend of digital innovation in the mining industry.
Numerical data analysis is an important step in understanding geologic characteristics of mineral deposits and/or building geologic models. It permits geologists to study characteristics of the deposit based on the sampled data, as well as to validate the consistency of the different models once they are built.
Hexagon Mining has grown to be the dominant planning, high-precision operations, and vehicle safety technology vendor in surface and pit mining. However, the mining industry acknowledges that in the future, mineral and metal deposits for global consumer and technology evolution are located deeper and deeper under the overburden of our earth.
