The 'Fusion of Technology' theme is most timely and critical to jump start this established industrial sector to another level of profitable quarrying. The fusion of technology involves the concept of combining and transforming a number of different core technologies in order to create new innovative products or market applications.  Resourceful new products outcomes are usually from a range of industries with different technological competences; such as the combination of electronics and optics in the sensor industry or even mechanical and electronics in the manufacturing industry.  The quarrying industry has always been acknowledged worldwide as the catalyst in the design and the construction of various unique structures, amenities and infrastructures all aimed towards global sustainability and society enhancement. This vibrant economic sector is thus the vital key element of any country worldwide striving for industrialised and developed nation status. The fusion of diverse technology is thus an economic ‘blue-ocean’ opportunity to create new markets and new growth opportunities for equipment and product manufacturers towards further profitable quarrying.  With the present global economic challenges a reality, the quarrying sector needs to acquire the latest high-tech knowledge on strategic and diverse fusion of technology innovations so that quarries can continue to stay competitive whilst conforming to the various environmental and safety expectations worldwide.
