Caixin Global reported that the dangers of coal mining have long been a concern in China, with accidents and fatalities commonplace, largely due to poor infrastructure and low risk awareness. The industry was long called “blood coal,” referencing the lives sacrificed by the seemingly ordinary though laborious occupation. Though it may not be realized overnight, a solution is now in the works. China’s National Coal Mine Safety Administration on Wednesday announced a strategic partnership with the country’s leading space technology agency, the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corp, to make “smart” industrial equipment, including coal-mining robots.

As with most high-tech endeavours in China, few details were made available about the advanced equipment.

CASC is the leading force behind China’s national defense equipment and aerospace projects, including the Chang’e-4 probe, which became the first spacecraft to land on the far side of the moon.
