The forthcoming scenarios for the progress of mining machines
Very frequently in the media, particularly on television, we can observe big excavating machinery working in opencast mines worldwide. Huge earthmoving machinery breaking through the tons of gravel materials to bring to the ground level the riches from under the level of the ground.
Even though Polish equipment is widely employed in mines, it is not the situation that Polish manufacturers have a monopoly on supplying local mines.

Nonetheless, we give the choice of machinery features to miners. Each instrument working on the outcrop is an expenditure of several dozen million zlotys for the mine, but once in numerous years. The requirement of the future is to replace the workers, in their most hazardous and troublesome work in opencast and subterranean mines, mining machines with AI. These should be mining machines that hear, observe and feel, and therefore self-drilling and self-guidinh, with minimal human interference. The unconditional need to increase the safety, availability and productivity of mining machines and instruments used in extensive and complex mining and transportations systems of openpit mines requires remote control of machinery or even the autonomy of their operation. This is specially truthful for those regions of the world where there are problems in encouraging professionals to work in the openpit mine because of its position away from human neighborhood and in a climate that is unfavorable to human beings.
Recently, opencast mines are the most advanced in the implementation of full automation, regularly transforming into independent operation of mining machinery.
