African Mining Insight talks to Tecknotrove about its expertise of creating Digital Twins for Mines for training in a virtual world.
Tecknotrove works closely with its clients to create detailed replicas of mines with the help of detailed site study and data collection . Using immersive technology like VR , clients can access the digital twins of their mines in a virtual environment without having to leave the centre or cross the safety limits. Custom Mine Sites from TecknoSIM are tailored to suit the training of actual operational procedures of heavy equipment in a realistic mining environment.
By putting on the VR headset , one experiences a virtual environment that is similar to the mining site in reality . New trainees and recruits get a better understanding of what is expected of them and how to handle different work situations. They can inspect every part of the site and even interact with the different virtual objects around them which directly leads to higher learning retention and better results. Experienced workers get trained on advanced skills and emergency situations. Training on custom mines prepares operators for site-related operating procedures, emergencies, specific procedural training, site familiarisation that enhances the abilities of the operators.
As one of Asia’s leading VR training & simulation companies, Tecknotrove has vast experience in developing cutting edge solutions for the mining industry for both surface mines and underground mines. Tecknotrove develops customized virtual training solutions for critical training applications for the mining industry. They develop fully customized VR training solutions that are capable of offering immersive learning experiences which can directly lead to higher productivity and efficiency in mining operations. We have worked with some of the largest mining companies in the world including Debswana Mines, Rio Tino, Sesa Goa . They also work with some of the largest OEMS like Komatsu, Caterpillar, BEML, Volvo to name a few.
