BHP DASH Maintainer Tools
Alex Bertram, Manager Digital Transformation, BHP
Simon Van Wegen, Director Mining Solutions, Komatsu

Front line safety is a priority across the mining sector. BHP is working hard to eliminate fatalities not just from their operations, but the industry as a whole.

To do this BHP is partnering with key players in the METS sector to scale the Austmine Miners’ Innovation Award winning DASH Maintainer Tools platform across industry.

Join Dash co-inventor Alex Bertram and partners from OEM and technology companies to learn more.

Safe, Practical, Wearable Mobile Device Solutions for Mining
Steve Humphris, Business Director AU & NZ RealWear Inc.
Evan Boyle, Senior Director Technology Solutions, Worley

This presentation will demonstrate why around 60000 HMT-1s have been sold to industry in the last two years, making the HMT-1 the most popular wearable device for industrial operations in the world and five times more successful than any other device.

We will focus on the technical design around maintaining situational awareness whilst connected to a handsfree device and demonstrate the use cases of this.

Data aggregation and visualisation
Murray Phillips, Strategic Account Manager, Rockwell Automation
Doug Bester, Managing Director, Sentient Computing

Rockwell and Sentient are working together to both simplify and enrich the user experience such as guiding connected miners though detailed maintenance procedures, streamlining and providing safer operations.

Rockwell’s IOT platform aggregates data from multiple existing IT and OT data sources, contextualises or groups this data to make it equipment centric and allows for performing workflows and analytics. Sentient provides visualisations such as 3D flyovers to provide an immersive experience of the aggregated data.

Native APIs allow for simple integration between the IOT platform and Sentient VR experiences, allowing for a large number of data sources to be visualised through one connection to the platform.
