Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology augments autonomous mining capabilities through a partnership with Exyn Technologies Inc. Customers will benefit from the unique combination of Sandvik’s world leading digital mining solutions and Exyn’s deep knowledge of autonomous aerial robot systems. Through this partnership we are working together to provide efficient solutions for mapping and visioning underground mines, which will make a substantial difference when it comes to mine locations that are hazardous, hard to reach or conventionally time-consuming to survey and inspect. Sandvik’s OptiMine combined with data collected by Exyn’s aerial robots creates progressive visualization and information of the mine’s actual environment to increase overall transparency of the mining process. The future collaboration between Sandvik and Exyn will entail research on how to apply and generate 3D views and perceptions of underground spaces autonomously, while leveraging the full potential of Sandvik’s AutoMine® system.

Exyn Technologies is pioneering autonomous aerial robot systems for complex, GPS-denied environments. The company’s full-stack solution enables flexible deployment of single or multi-robots that can intelligently navigate and dynamically adapt to complex environments in real-time. For the first time, industries like mining, logistics, and construction can benefit from a single, integrated solution to capture critical and time-sensitive data in a safer, more affordable, and more efficient way.
