RoboMine:  Robotics and Automation in Mining

Welcome to RoboMine
What is the mining industry going to look like in the 22nd century? Our goal in RoboMine is to maintain it as the expanding source of news, views, opinions, and information on robotics and automation with emphasis on their application in mining technology. We want to educate, inspire, and connect those who want to know more about the fascinating and ever-expanding technology of robotics and intelligent systems. We know that now in mining, this new wave of technological advances is knocking down the doors of conventional mining methods with improved systems. If you have any papers or articles related to robotics and intelligent systems in mining, please feel free to email us. Please also let us know of any improvements you would like us to make to RoboMine. We appreciate your input. Enjoy your visit!
