16 European organisations take part in €7 million sustainable digital mining project

A seven million euro project titled ‘A Human-centred Internet of Things Platform for the Sustainable Digital Mine of the Future’ (Dig_IT) will be administered by a consortium of 16 European organisations. The project, which will be managed by the Aragón Technological Institute, aims at developing an industrial Internet of things (IIoT) platform that incorporates and examines data from workers, machinery, surrounding environment, and markets. It will focus on the quality of the data and their correct interpretation in real-time to optimise mining processes and operations. This will be achieved through deploying digital technologies, data analysis methodologies, process modelling, generation of digital twins, telecommunications, and sensor development.
