RCT has witnessed recent changes in the mining industry as it embraces and leverages automation and digital technologies to streamline efficiencies to increase productivity, safety and significantly reduce costs.
As a result, the technology company has released its own interoperability statement.
"The statement is necessary in today's digital world as the demand for data continues to grow significantly as clients look towards analytics and systems to process, analyse, interpret and convert [data] to the desired information," said RCT's mining and resources product manager, Mick Tanner.
The statement outlines how RCT's systems will communicate within this digital sphere in order to adhere to data privacy and ensure safety within this space. Available on RCT's website, it covers data accessibility, fleet data compatibility, data privacy and protection.
RCT's EarthTrack data and information product range is its interoperable solution that will deliver clients relevant information. This information system will do so by retaining the system's original character and integrity without compromising the safety of other systems.
"The term interoperability means the ability of a system to work with or use the parts of equipment of another system," he added.
Although interoperability is the latest buzzword, RCT said it has long held the philosophy of ensuring that its systems have always been able to integrate with clients' existing infrastructure seamlessly.
"As an independent technology supplier, this has always been our point of difference from the OEMs' systems," said Tanner.
"RCT's systems can integrate with any machine, regardless of make and model. Also, within any mine's communications network and infrastructure and with any other systems; sharing critical information without compromising safety and system functionality."
