Challenge

To develop an effective presentation tool to demonstrate innovative mining technologies developed by the company: robotic dump trucks and drilling rigs, predictive analytics to solve the problems of optimizing the processes of a mining enterprise, forecast repairs for a digital mining enterprise. To provide the possibility of using this product at major exhibitions, in sales departments, on the company’s website

Product

Based on the internal data of the automated system for managing the mining and transport complex, a multi-platform solution was developed in the form of an application for the touch panel, a web module for the site and an application with augmented reality for the iPad. Using the system, the user can monitor in real time the key scenarios of the operation of the mining enterprise management system: dynamic optimization, monitoring and control of loading of dump trucks, KPI operators, monitoring of operation parameters and condition of mining machines, real-time reporting management, forecasting performance and plan implementation

UI for touch-panel

Impact

Project was first presented at the XXVI International Specialized Exhibition of Mining Technologies “Coal of Russia and Mining 2019”, in which an interactive stand using a touch panel and tablets demonstrated the main advantages of the ACS SCC “Carrier” — an automated control system for mining and transport complex.
