Abstract

In today’s world, the exponential growth in technological advancements has allowed us to access information much faster and in a more convenient manner than ever before. On daily basis, consumers connect to the digital world through their smartphone devices in a variety of different methods. One of these methods is through QR codes which have become increasingly popular and effective in a variety of different industries. The underground mining industry needs the introduction of modern innovations that would facilitate the flow of information as well as increase the safety at work. There are many practical ways that QR codes can be used in underground mining industry. This paper presents a system of QR code integration in underground mining industry using smartphones, were each worker can receive information and data that are crucial for the successful performance of their work activities. Three scenarios for the application and integration of this system in the mines for underground exploitation will also be presented in this paper.
