A major objective of the NIOSH research study was to assess the accuracy of the WBV app and determine if it can be a useful low-cost tool for monitoring WBV exposure on mobile mine
and quarry equipment.
Diesel has long been the fuel of choice for powering mobile mine
equipment because of its availability and familiarity, plus the lack of viable alternatives for most haulage applications.
The Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV), which will fill the gap between the legacy High Mobility Mutlipurpose Wheeled Vehicle ("Humvee") and the bulkier, less mobile Mine
Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle, is using a commercial off-the-shelf-based acquisition strategy and adaptive approach to lower costs and incorporate improvements over the program's life cycle.
The Helmet-CAM technology has proven to be a viable tool to perform this assessment and determine where and when a mobile mine
worker is being exposed to respirable dust.
Navy's submarine launched mobile mine
(SLMM), can be launched at a distance and navigate to where it will lie in wait.
Northland Resources S.A., Iron ore concentrate producer stated that it has inked a hiring placement for mobile mine
equipment with a major Scandinavian bank, at a value of $25 million.
The shallow-water Chen-1, -2, -3, and -6 influence mines can be placed for defense of ports and harbors; the T-5 mobile mine
can be laid in deeper waters in channels and approaches to ports; and the Soviet PMK-1 and the Chinese-developed Mao-5 rocket rising mines are intended for deeper waters farther from ports and in open-ocean areas and choke points.

These solutions will bring fuel cost reductions and emissions improvements to the sector through focused applications in the form of mobile mine
haul fleets and other stationary applications.
China reportedly has completed development of a mobile mine
and may be producing improved variants of Russian bottom mines and moored-influence mines.
But just as its war against Angolan-backed forces in SWA obliged South Africa to hone its demining skills, so too the war which led to the establishment of Zimbabwe encouraged the development of mobile mine
The natural next phase of evolution towards the automation of underground mines is the implementation of information management solutions that use the existing leaky feeder as an enabling infrastructure, giving management access to real time information of their mobile mine
resources including personnel, equipment, and materials.
