Automated Drone Solution for Mines

Airobotics has developed an automatic, on-demand solution for collecting aerial data in mining facilities without the logistics involved in drone operations.

It's no secret that the world’s largest mining companies are investing immense resources in finding technological solutions to increase efficiency, improve safety and streamline operations. Drones are becoming an integral tool in this transformation, replacing manual inspections in the most hazardous areas and collecting critical information, while drastically reducing the time and manpower required.

Airobotics' on-demand solution provides a direct connection to aerial data and new levels of insight. This autonomous drone, streamlines operations, increases efficiency and offers immediate, easy access to the required data. All without loading and transporting the drone, having to wait for the survey, or being dependent on a service provider.     

Airobotics drone solution provides critical information in the following areas:

  • Stockpile volumes and end-of-month reconciliation
  • Terrain mapping and change detection
  • Asset management and scheduling
  • Situational awareness and emergency response
  • Infrastructure and equipment inspection
  • Security and surveillance

UAV Applications


Many mining companies are investing immense resources in technological solutions that provide greater data collection and analysis. This data has enabled companies to monitor what is happening on-site and generate insights that can improve results, cut costs and advance capital flexibility for growth opportunities.

Airobotics’ concept paper, Automated Drone Applications in Mining, gives an in-depth look into various drone applications used in mining, including the direct and indirect cost benefits.

With Airobotics’ fully automated and self-operated drone platform, mining companies can receive the data they require for various functions across the mine, without the operational complexity and overhead.

The paper includes the following applications: 

  • Stockpile Management
  • Geotechnical Modeling
  • Inspection & Monitoring
  • Drilling & Blasting
  • Hauling Optimization
  • General Project Oversight
  • Tailings Dams
  • Security & Emergency Response
