This review of literature explores the emerging human factors trends with automated mining equipment. It begins by defining the term ‘human factors’ and why it is important to consider operators and maintainers when designing and deploying mining automation. Thereafter it briefly focuses on the need...
This project is aimed at understanding how new technologies can be developed in ways that take into account the human factors issues related to remote controlled/ automated mining equipment. Initially, the work includes conducting literature reviews, compiling an “active” database of existing and emerging technologies,...
