Autonomous inspections and
monitoring for mining

The mining industry has been one of the fastest to integrate
autonomous technology into operations at scale.

Automatic visual data

Reducing the cost of surveys and improving inventory assessment accuracy and security are critical for any mining site. Today, companies relying on manual inspections and monitoring, and even manually operated robotics, are left at risk to significant failures and inefficiencies.

Autonomous robots managed by Percepto AIM are equipped with machine vision capabilities to provide continuous visual data to mine personnel around the globe, making it easier and faster for them to survey and analyze mining sites.

Upon deployment, operational costs are a little more than electricity, enabling daily assessment of inventory, routine inspections of equipment, and advanced modeling and forecasting of production.

Autonomous inspections in mining: top 10 use cases

One of the biggest advantages of autonomous mine inspections is that employees aren’t required to be on site to inspect and monitor the mine. That means first and foremost that employees can perform their jobs safer and more efficiently.

By automating tasks including stockpile measurements, tailings dam inspections and environmental monitoring, any company can effectively increase safety and minimize downtime.
