Industrial internet of things and gamification applied to fleet and personnel management

Abstract

The ubiquity of big data, Internet of Things (IoT), and smart devices is radi-cally changing society, our personal lives are being tracked, digitally motivated through gami-fication, where digital interactions have become an addiction at all income levels, genders, and generations. These forces should not be held at bay in mining, rather we should embrace and take advantage of this phenomenon to improve safety and productivity. Real case studies of these applications of both technology and approach, such as gamification, show that these tracking technologies can bring high visibility and large amounts of data to even the smallest operations and the challenge of making use of the data can be facilitated through the application of gamification. As with our personal smart devices, these technologies are poised to deliver huge improvements in operator feedback, tracking, and performance management, at a much lower cost per unit.
