Anglo American's recent announcement of their partnership with Autonomous Solutions, Inc. to develop robotic haulage solutions
highlights a global interest of mining companies in robotics. Vehicle automation helps drive down costs and improve safety; however, as mines begin adopting vehicle automation technologies, they are often met with software or hardware systems that are complex and difficult use. These types of challenges shackle an organization's scalability and make it more difficult to justify the cost of automation.
In contrast, a new module for ASI's Mobius™
command and control software, the Haulage A.I., is designed to be simple to use.
