B.S. Mechanical Engineering
NEBOSH certified Mechanical Engineer with 3 years of experience as a technical writer and editor. Owais is interested in occupational health and safety, computer hardware, industrial and mobile robotics. During his academic career, Owais worked on several research projects regarding mobile robots, notably the Autonomous Fire Fighting Mobile Robot.
The designed mobile robot could navigate, detect and extinguish fire autonomously. Arduino Uno was used as the microcontroller to control the flame sensors' input and output of the flame extinguisher. Apart from his professional life, Owais is an avid book reader and a huge computer technology enthusiast and likes to keep himself updated regarding developments in the computer industry.
The age-old practice of ore sorting is getting a high-tech makeover thanks to advancements in sensor technologies. As sensors enable automated, real-time sensing of ore characteristics, they hold the potential to transform ore sorting into a highly optimized process that maximizes sustainability and efficiency.
Here, we explore the different strategies that are being utilized to maximize productivity during mining equipment maintenance and discuss some real-life commercial case studies.
While deep seabed mining offers a potential new source of scarce metals, it also poses risks of environmental harm that must be carefully studied and mitigated. This article examines how fluid mechanics underlies these challenges.
This article explores the viability of deep-sea mining as a sustainable alternative to land-based mining for essential metals.
Collision avoidance systems in mines involve tracking sensors, tags, and vehicles to trigger collision alerts, create safe zones, and provide mining operators with proximity awareness without interfering with their work.
Shell has formed a nine-member consortium to develop a new pilot project for decarbonizing the mining industry. An interoperable, end-to-end electrification system minimizes carbon emissions without sacrificing operational efficiency while striving to be cost-competitive with diesel-powered vehicles
Artificial intelligence (AI) has helped mining companies forecast slope failures quickly and efficiently through detailed analysis.
One of the biggest obstacles to rescuing miners after an accident is the unknown level of danger, which can derail rescue operations and even put lives in danger. In such circumstances, the contribution of mobile underground robots becomes crucial.
Human progress has always been dependent on the restricted resources available on Earth. However, the moon, despite its appearance as a barren rock, could be a treasure mine of rare resources important to Earth's survival.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is gradually entering the mining industry. From workflow management to mineral deposit forecasting, AI provides cost-effective and efficient extraction of minerals.
