A mining simulator is a system used to replicate elements of mining operations, for training or efficiency analysis. Mining simulation application can range from pure statistical analysis, to scale models, all the way to replica cabins of mining machinery mounted on pneumatic actuators surrounded by screens displaying three-dimensional imagery. These simulators rely on physics engines and geodata to accurately simulate the dynamics of the environment.
