Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) June 30, 2014
In February and March 2014, Publisher surveyed 110 mine managers, maintenance managers, procurement managers and other key decision-makers in over 90 operating Australian mines. For this report publisher focused on the questions relating to each operation’s current investment intentions for technology and their views on the use of future technology such as autonomous vehicles.
Overall trends in the data revealed:
- Respondents were asked to review 12 different technology areas ranging from Communication product/systems’ to Real-time video training’. They were then asked if their operations had either invested in the technology or were considering investments, or neither.
- Investment intentions across these 12 technology areas have been analyzed according to various segmentations, including mine type, company size and commodity type. Identifying different trends based on these different groups.
- Respondents were specifically asked about their views on the timeframes of autonomous vehicles, whether they saw autonomous vehicles as a viable option at their operation.
- Finally, Timetric asked respondents their views of what the dominant driver of technology is, and despite Safety’ being consistently ranked as the number one driver, other priorities were identified in our report based on job titles and company size.
