Wearable Technology in Mining – Thematic Research

The mining industry remain in an incredibly dangerous line of work, even in the modern world. The mining depths required for mineral or precious metal exploration come with a whole host of risks for miners, from poisonous gases and heat to geological instabilities which can cause cave-ins. While on the surface there is the risk of collisions. Wearable technology has the potential to greatly decrease risk to miners, and increase productivity through a variety of different methods, including enabling on-site personnel to carry out repairs or advanced work with offsite guidance.
