Digital services in the mining industry were traditionally driven by occupational safety and the need to increase productivity and efficiency. Industry 4.0 has already resulted in the automation of many practices, introducing devices to capture and provide a real time view of operations. This resulted in organisations digitising their operational data and enabling faster machine communications. This has been further encouraged by the advances in cellular networks.
