Efficiency is one of the core values of FrontMet. A technological development that contributes to efficiency in the mining and recycling industry is the drone (a small and unmanned aircraft). This technology allows companies to do things that could have never been done before. There are many examples where drones are making operations safer, more efficient and gather more data. As the technology continues to evolve, drones will become more and more common at sites all over the world. Operators will increasingly learn to rely on the technology and make the necessary changes to their workflow to streamline drones into their regular operations. BHP Billiton created a short video about how drones are changing the mining industry.
