In this paper,a scientific idea was proposed,i. e. ,the intelligent coal mine is the core technology support for the coal industry development. The definition and general requirements of intelligent coal mine were expounded. The development goal of intelligent coal mine is to build smart coal mine. The connotation and relationship of coal mine in- telligence,wisdom,informationization and digitalization were analyzed. Also,the construction principles and goal of in- telligent coal mine were proposed. The top-layer design of intelligent coal mine was carried out,and the ideas of the in- tegrated planning development mode of intelligent coal mine,the scientific design on the overall framework of intelli- gent coal mine,and the construction of 100 intelligent demonstration coal mines were put forward. In addition,the main development routes of intelligent coal mine were discussed including the precision geological exploration and 4d- intelligent GIS system of underground coal mine,the intelligent development plan and the working face design,the intelli- gent roadway rapid drivage technology,the intelligent technology of fully mechanized coal face,the intelligent main /auxiliary transportation technology,the hazard sources intelligent perception and early warning technology,the intelli- gent washing system,the intelligent comprehensive support technology,and the comprehensive control system and oper- ating platform of mine Internet of things. Furthermore,the development direction of intelligent open pit coal mine was expounded. The development ideas of constructing the information system of open pit coal mine,developing the intelli- gent continuous mining technology of open pit coal mine,establishing the integrated space-air-ground safety warning system in open pit coal mine,and promoting the coordinated green development of ecological environment in open pit coal mine were put forward. It is important to vigorously develop intelligent manufacturing of coal mining equipment, improve the reliability and adaptability of coal mining equipment,promote the robotized substitution of coal resource development,and provide intelligent equipment support for intelligent development of coal mining. Some policy sugges- tions were put forward,such as increasing policy support for intelligent development of coal mine,setting up special projects for the intelligent standard system construction of coal mine,and establishing a national experimental platform for the intelligent technology innovation of coal mine.
