“There is a constant pressure on mining companies to maximize production, find skilled manpower , keep workforce safe, train manpower to operate complex, automated equipment that requires safe, efficient maintenance. AR & VR technologies have the potential to address many of these issues by offering mining operators improved levels of productivity, safety and machinery uptime and better trained manpower “ says Shantanu Gupta – Director Tecknotrove Systems.
