The company is engaged in development of Intelligent Mine project – robotized mining technology for open pits – a unique technology in Russia and CIS to turn all equipment (excavators, dump trucks, loaders, drilling rigs and railway vehicles) into autonomous or teleoperated exploitation mode. The use of automated equipment in mining and metallurgical enterprises will enhance the haul production and safety by decreasing the number of dangerous operations, performed by humans in harsh ecological conditions. The technology has already passed successful industrial tests in Russia, Belarus and Morocco. To develop robotic systems within the framework of Intelligent Mine project, VIST Group has formed a subsidiary company – VIST Robotics.

To implement its strategic innovation programs, VIST Group actively collaborates with the world’s leading producers of mining equipment (BELAZ, Chetra, KAMAZ, VOLVO, etc.), as well as with technological systems and software complexes producers for the mining industry and metallurgy. In addition, the company is a partner of many educational institutions, research centers and non-profit organizations in order to develop innovative technologies for the mining industry around the world.
