The rise of the
autonomous machines

Mining companies are undertaking operations in increasingly remote and inhospitable locations. A key element of supporting this expansion is securing a highly trained, motivated workforce to excavate, process and ship the raw materials. The global skills shortage combined with the lack of creature comforts in isolated parts of Australia, Africa and South America has made this a complex issue to resolve. BMT WBM has worked with some of the major players in the mining industry and applied some lateral thought to the problem to develop an innovative solution that utilises cutting-edge simulation and visualisation technology.
