More About This Textbook

Overview

The results of a series of in-depth discussions with leading representatives of 58 mining and quarrying firms, equipment manufacturers, research institutions, and other organizations selected for their prominent position in the industry and their ability to think broadly about technology trends. These trends include adoption of information technologies and optimization of mining operations and equipment; the use of information and communications technologies to more closely integrate mine operations; improved maintenance technologies and practices; and gradual implementation of technologies for operator assistance, remote control, and automation. The discussions highlighted the importance of collaborative technology research, development, and implementation strategies and the increasingly critical role of mine personnel in the utilization of new technologies.
