Course overview

With digitisation an undeniable reality for the future of mining, an understanding of the Mine Internet of Things (MIoT) - how systems can be connected, and combined data harnessed – will be a critical ingredient for the mining professional’s career progression.

This 90-minute masterclass offers participants a time-efficient opportunity to gain systematic training on essential factors associated with Mine Internet of Things.

Explore the fundamentals of technologies needed for MIoT like sensors, actuators, communications, positioning, data analytics, programming, big data and Artificial Intelligence. Review recent developments of these technologies; and learn how to keep data and systems safe in a connected online environment. 

Now more than ever, mines need to leverage the wealth of data being collated across their sites in the face of increasing costs, decreasing ore grades, remote sites and extreme geotechnical and geological challenges. For organisations, ensuring staff are equipped with the skills to understand and deploy new technologies efficiently will be essential for driving improvements across the business.

Offering a balanced introduction to MIoT, this masterclass is essential learning for exploring, adopting and championing new technologies leading the future of mine operations. 

Delivered in collaboration with AusIMM’s Education Partner, UNSW Sydney.
