Robotics, remote control, manipulator, visibility, discrete event simulation, Petri nets, GPSS/H®


The paper is aimed to simulate strategies of underground mining without miners: replacement of miners by remote-controlled manipulators, robotics based mining, control of mobile machines from surface. Petri nets and GPSS/H® were used to determine requirements for mining machinery in the future.
