It seems that the time when mining required the physical participation of a person, who exposes his life to unjustified risk every day, is gradually becoming a thing of the past.
Due to the difficult geological conditions of mountainous areas, there is a danger of stones falling at any time. Now, thanks to 5G technology, the driver can sit in an air-conditioned room and remotely control an excavator and any other vehicle. Work is safe, and production efficiency is greatly improved.
What became known
Huawei, in its official microblog on the Weibo platform, has published a video that demonstrates all the benefits of the world’s first unmanned mining in a molybdenum mine.
Using 5G technology, the video shows how to remotely control not only an excavator, but also 30 other unmanned electric vehicles. At the same time, production efficiency increases by about 30%.
The video shows that around the mine there are Huawei 5G base stations, as well as communication equipment available in the driver’s remote control room, thousands of kilometers away.
