The implementation of IoT in lead mining industry is enhancing decision making capabilities and reduces production costs. IoT enables the sensors to pick up real time data, analyze the data, facilitate equipment communication, identifies faulty equipment and derive insights from the data generated. With fully integrated network, the mining equipment is monitored on real time basis and a report is projected on when the repairs or maintenance is required. In the near future, IoT is expected to become the standard in mining industry.
