GeoMoby is set to work alongside Cisco Systems on underground mining solutions that will extract telemetry to be visualised by GeoMoby. The complementary technology of both companies will improve safety and operations in underground mining, as the mines of the future become smarter.
In Perth, Chris Baudia – founder and CEO of GeoMoby – said:
“We are delighted to work alongside Cisco Systems. This is a significant development for our company and it will accelerate our growth in Australia and overseas. We look forward to working closely together as we continue to improve safety in underground mining and ultimately accelerate the digitalisation and automation of the industry.
“One high-level industry expert told us there is no one better than GeoMoby, right now, in underground communication technology in the world. This is a very important recommendation for our product.
“The world is changing: environmental and heritage concerns are driving more and more mines underground, and there is a demand to make those mines operate more productively and keep workers safer. Cisco has recognised the innovative technology approach of GeoMoby can be of real and immediate benefit in underground mining safety.
“GeoMoby’s technology, which is complementary to Cisco’s, is assisting Cisco fulfill their clients’ objectives.”
“Enabling autonomous operations and understanding the location of people and assets, in real time, are necessary for realising fully operational smart mines. Smart mines require the ability to make good decisions based on large volumes of data, specifically within tunnels.
“A common goal of both GeoMoby and Cisco is to accelerate the digitalisation of the mining industry. GeoMoby uses, extends and enhances Cisco technology within mining operations. The result is a readily implementable mining platform that enables continual optimisation of operations and safety in underground mining.”
Mathieu Paul, GeoMoby Director, said:
“GeoMoby’s innovative technology has been rigorously tested by Cisco and has been proven to vastly improve underground mining visibility; the ability to locate assets and people in real-time; and protect people. With the support of Cisco, the GeoMoby team is looking forward to rolling out our technology to many of the world’s largest underground mines over the coming years.”
