The development of remotely operated mining equipment and systems has created many new opportunities for mining companies. However, operating equipment remotely requires a different set of skills than operating from inside the vehicle cab. This change in operational requirements often results in increased machine damage and a reduction in productivity when remote operation is introduced. Training solutions from Immersive Technologies give remote equipment operators the skills and understanding to transition from traditional operation to remote operation quickly; minimizing impact to production and ensuring that machines remain in operation for longer periods. Our remote operation training solution can provide a blend of computer based training, classroom and simulator training to deliver a high level of training effectiveness and consistent learning outcomes.
