Automated Drones: A Giant Step in the Mining Value Chain
Drones are rapidly being adopted as a commercial practice across the globe, particularly in the mining industry. As part of a growing theme of digitization in mining, drones are serving as a bridge connecting decision-makers with valuable data collected throughout the mining process.
Automation of the drone operation itself furthers the efficiency of this connection by eliminating delays and operator involvement while providing seamless access to routine and real-time insights. The automated drone system can be defined as one which performs, completely operator-free, each stage of the drone mission between the mission request and the delivery of the processed data to the requester.
The future success of mining hinges on the ability to manage variability and uncertainty through a fully integrated holistic digital mining environment. The automated drone system will be considered a strategic component of this future, not just simply a tactical, cost driven activity.
