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.
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.
Mining corporations are making ambitious pledges to decarbonize their operations to decrease economic risk and contribute to the battle against climate change. A significant reduction in the emission profile of mining will be critical to the decarbonization of the global economy.
Due to the inherent dangers of mining, safety training is important. In the mining industry, virtual and augmented reality is being used to replace outdated and ineffective training with more effective immersive experiences.

Prof. James Tour
AZoMining speaks with James Tour from Rice University about his team's exciting method that has the very real potential to recover valuable REE from three types of waste; electronic waste, coal fly ash and bauxite residue.
Craig Liddicoat from Flinders University speaks to AZoMining about his team's work on effective rehabilitation in post-mining ecosystems and whether it can set up a predictable trajectory of recovery. We also ask why ecosystem recovery is important in mining operations and the current limitations af
In this interview, Andrew Somers from SciAps Australia talks to AZoMining about the new Geochem Pro application for the Z range of handheld elemental analyzers, and the improvements that have been made to their technology over the last year.
