  • 1. Caterpillar: Leveraging technology can help solve the industry’s biggest problems
Mining customers are focused on the safety of their workers and achieving productivity improvements that positively impact their bottom line – and they know, technology is the key. A building block approach to automation and autonomy allows for customers to create a solution that works best for their site, their people and their business. This talk will focus on the future of mining, and how the future … is now.
  • 2. Trevali Mining & the Digital Transformation at two African Mines
