With the rise of automation, drones are rapidly being adopted as a commercial practice in the mining industry.
The success of mining in the future hinges on the ability to manage variability and uncertainty through a fully-integrated digital mining environment, and drones are crucial to this. They eliminate delays and shield operators from dangerous situations - while offering seamless access to real-time insights.
This white paper discusses why commercial drones are quickly replacing more expensive, ground-based mine surveying equipment, and shows how they optimize multiple sections of the mining value chain to enable rapid mine-to-model capability.
