Companies who adapt drone technology into their mining operations generally see significant value fairly quickly. By being able to do things like autonomously measuring stockpile volumes, managing inventory across sites, and updating mine plans with daily topography changes, the efficiency of their sites and quarries skyrockets. It also allows teams to work together more safely, with up to 80 percent more accurate data than manual measurement that’s stored in one central cloud application.
The popularity of drone technology across the mining industry has grown immensely in recent years, with over 50 percent of mines having some form of investment in drone technology. In 2020, we saw that establishing and maintaining operations, especially in the midst of COVID-19, created a larger need for drone platforms that helped socially distanced workers and clients across industries.
In this webinar, we talked with Matt Lewis, Director of AGG Resources at CEMEX, a long time Kespry customer, on how they have evolved their mining operations like monitoring and inspection, surveying and mapping, stockpile management and haul road optimization, as well as how they’ve implemented drone technology to redefine what’s needed both for their business and the industry as a whole.
