Mine dump truck augmented reality demo

Visit Rockwell at Austmine to experience its augmented reality (AR) dump truck demo using its FactoryTalk InnovationSuite.

This demo will highlight mine-to-market visibility by ensuring connectivity to devices, applications and multiple data sources across the organisation. By collecting, aggregating and analysing data across operations, allowing miners to spot trends and interdependencies that may be missed when data lives in silos. Using AR and 3D interactions for guided step-by-step work instructions, allows users to make better business decisions.

FactoryTalk InnovationSuite, powered by PTC, improves connectivity to operational technology (OT) devices on the plant floor, natively supporting the rapid, scalable, and secure connection of the most commonly used industrial equipment.

Combined with data from information technology (IT) applications and systems, decision makers can now gain a complete digital representation of their industrial equipment, lines, and facilities from anywhere in the enterprise.
