Epiroc, in partnership with ASI Mining, introduced Mobius for Drills, which will help mines on their path to digitization and automation, Epiroc said.

Mobius for Drills imports drill plans, monitors drilling and creates reports over a secure system on site or remotely. It supports manned operations, teleoperation, semi- and fully-autonomous modes, and covers applications from drill-and-blast through autonomous haulage systems.

The platform displays data on drill usage in an easy-to-use format. It allows the user to quickly evaluate statistics, track consumables, and make comparisons of plans and results.

Mobius for Drills is designed for use with mixed fleets, and can be used as a fleet management system (FMS) or as a subordinate system within an existing FMS.

The platform supports decision making at all levels with relevant data, and it ties together the whole value chain, leadership at Epiroc said. “It provides valuable insight at each stage of the drilling process through a drill plan builder for planning, situational awareness for drill controllers, and reporting for supervisors.”
