Mineral Mining Technology


The authors propose a promising approach to reduction of the environmental impact of open pit mineral mining—robotic automation of geotechnologies. The objectives, techniques and advantages of introduction of industrial robots are discussed. The analysis of development and improvement of geotechnical system reveals factors that limit application of mechanized, automated and robotic equipment. The structural elements of geotechnical system using mechanized and robotic mining and transportation machines are compared.
