i-TEK 's RFID technology solutions has a broad range of applications in the mining sector. These applications include, integrated traffic management system, asset tracking system, truck and its travel time measurement in an open-pit mine, vehicle identification to know the filled vehicle count along with its entry-exit monitoring, intrusion detection system, mine operation management based on equipment and personnel tracking and tracking of high value items/equipment's, etc. The idea of asset-person-vehicle marking with RFID tags is to combine mining Tracking/Monitoring Systems.
By combining mining RFID solutions for tracking and monitoring, condition monitoring sensors, mobile devices and analytics software, i-TEK's integrated platform helps maximize production and profitability by enabling mine operators.
IoT enabled equipment provides real-time updates allowing mining companies to jointly manage operations and delivery and improve business decision-making. With this real-time information, mining companies can anticipate and prevent problems, better monitor logistics and equipment, improve quality control, and adapt production to match demand.
The mining industry is characterized by harsh environmental conditions. The main challenge in this Industry is to optimize productivity at the lowest possible cost level, while safeguarding the wellbeing of the staff that is involved in the mining process. Condition are harsh and heavy machinery like cranes, smelters, loaders and drills are used. Locations are remote and the logistics of resources and material involved is often challenging.
It is always the production of the stakeholders of mining to have accurate information regarding the production and transport of ore for either domestic or export purposes. In this view, various technologies have been utilized in the past to minimize manual intervention in the data collection process and thereby eliminate potential causes of human errors leading to improper accounting.
