CEO and founder of Autonomous Solutions, Mel Torrie, has an ambitious goal to give back one billion dollars through various charitable activities striving to help others reach their fullest potential.

ASI Gives Back, the volunteer group responsible for ASI’s charitable initiatives, regularly organizes events in which its employees participate. Autonomous Solutions, Inc. is the corporate sponsor for the Wayne Julien Torrie Foundation, a nonprofit organization that manages fundraising activities in alignment with the ASI Gives Back group.

Recently, ASI Gives Back dreamed bigger and organized an event that gave volunteers the opportunity to make an impact for underprivileged children in Guatemala by providing things like LEGO robotics kits, tablets, musical instruments, efficient gardening systems and more.

A lot of work and contributions went into making these efforts possible. ASI Gives Back, along with the foundation, organized several events for employees and the community to donate to the cause. These fundraising events were highlighted by the first Robot Days 5K Fun Run, hosted at ASI’s 100-acre facility in northern Utah. Runners young and old were able to race a robot on ASI’s vehicle tracks, enjoy a pancake breakfast, play with LEGO robots, win prizes and more.

ASI Gives Back gardening stands

With preparations completed and funds raised, the ASI team traveled to Guatemala. It was made up of volunteer ASI employees and their families. They had an amazing experience and loved helping the people of Guatemala.

The goal was to help local elementary schools raise their educational capabilities through several projects focused on music, gardening, and technology. ASI Gives Back teamed up with theTango Foundation which provides medical services in impoverished areas and is familiar with some of the challenges these schools face. ASI Gives Back also worked with Pueblo a Pueblo, a local non-profit in Guatemala to help plan and organize these efforts.

One project involved building an efficient gardening system to increase the yield of their crops. Well before heading to Guatemala, the group designed and tested several innovative ways to grow crops. They found that a certain vertical growing structure performed the best and made the most sense. These growing systems will provide more food, leading to fewer malnourished children.

Another project done jointly with World Possible, another non-profit, provided access to educational websites for five schools in areas where the internet is not accessible. ASI supplied 50 tablets and five servers and installed a system called RACHEL, “a portable plug-and-play server which stores educational websites and makes that content available over any local (offline) wireless connection.” Then the tablets can be used by students in the classroom, as if they were on the internet, to enhance their education and open new opportunities.



Guatemalan school teachers using robots

The last focus was music. ASI brought keyboards and drum kits for the schools to teach music to their students. In addition, volunteers held music sessions to share the instruments and their rhythmic talents with the children.

Other projects included teaching entrepreneurial and QuickBooks trainings and providing resources for those interested in starting small businesses in the area, such as bee keeping. The group also helped tile the floor of one of the libraries and supplied bee keeping equipment and materials to build bee hives. They also teamed up with Days for Girls and gave more than 80 women and girls the tools they needed to improve their quality of life.

ASI volunteers made some great friends and lasting memories from this experience. One of the Guatemalan school teachers has a Youtube channel. Interested viewers can subscribe to his channel to see the impact these volunteers had on his school and students. ASI Gives Back would like to thank all of the individuals, companies and organizations that helped make this possible.

Car companies often boast about the safety of their vehicles. Car collisions remain a too common occurrence, so protecting the passengers inside needs to be a top priority. But how are automotive brands confident their cars and trucks are, in fact, safe? It starts by subjecting the vehicles to rigorous durability and misuse testing on miles of tracks known as proving grounds.

Traditionally, a proving ground is where car makers test automobiles in different scenarios with respect to speed, climate conditions, road conditions (pot holes, loose rubble, etc.), and other driving hazards. Having a human perform these tests can be dangerous, adding risk of injury and the high cost of insurance. It is also inefficient, as humans are not always able to easily perform and repeat the tests to satisfactory levels without multiple attempts.

There are strict regulations regarding how long a person can drive on proving grounds, primarily due to the extreme hazardous conditions that exist on the tracks vehicles are tested on. By replacing the test driver with advanced A.I., car makers can achieve faster, more productive misuse testing that doesn’t put human lives in jeopardy.



ASI’s OEM agnostic Vehicle Automation Kit and intelligent software is able to automate the driving functions of virtually any vehicle (consumer vehicles, tractor, mining equipment), and enhance the safety and productivity of proving grounds. Our technology puts robotic technology in the driver’s seat, and allows a human operator to direct tests from the safety of a computer back at the control center.

The kit is rugged enough to withstand any harsh durability test, and repeat it for as long as a fuel tank will allow. Robotics can also complete actions that are not suitable for humans to execute, such as rollovers, jumps, and other dangerous maneuvers on any road surface including compacted rubble, loose rubble, potholes and ruts, mud, rough grassy field, and more.

In addition to providing better safety, our Vehicle Automation Kit cuts the time that it would take human drivers to complete the same test in half. Automated vehicles do not have to stop for regulated breaks as deemed by law, or to switch drivers due to fatigue. A single operator can command multiple vehicles at the same time to further improve efficiency.




The same operator can program the automobiles to increase or decrease speed at designated parts of the track, if so required by the demands of the test. Since they are precise and less prone to error, automated vehicles yield results that are easily repeatable for the highest levels of integrity.

ASI’s advanced automation technology is trusted by Ford, Chrysler, Toyota, and Hyundai to conduct tests that are safe and repeatable at their proving grounds. These tests can yield reliable results in half the time, all without putting humans in harm’s way. Our Vehicle Automation Kit is an affordable solution that increases proving ground efficiency and decreases exposure to risk at a value our expensive competitors can’t match.

You may have heard the terms collision warning system (CWS) or collision avoidance system (CAS) when watching a car commercial. Automakers, realizing the future of transportation lies in driverless technology, have been deploying these features for nearly a decade. As a result, people are becoming acquainted with automated technology, and will one day be comfortable enough to give full control of their automobiles to artificial intelligence.

While the terms collision warning system and collision avoidance system may seem interchangeable, there are actually marked differences between the two. As mining operations begin to invest in automated technology to improve the efficiency of their fleets, it’s important to understand the distinctions before making a big capital expenditure.

A collision warning system uses GPS radar and/or lasers to detect an impending collision, and audibly warns the driver a crash is imminent. A collision avoidance system takes this a step further, and will activate the brakes or increase speed and navigate the vehicle away from the danger. CAS doesn’t completely replace a driver, but will actively assist in avoiding hazards in order to provide an extra layer of security. Some firms that provide automation upgrades may try to misconstrue the terms, so it’s imperative to know the differences when investing in this technology.



At ASI, our Mobius® command and control system is a modular platform mining companies can incorporate into their current operations to provide incremental automaton upgrades to their vehicles. Many mining operations aren’t able to make a full-scale migration to a driverless fleet due to capital requirements, possible disruptions to production, or wariness about artificial intelligence. As a result, it’s common to take a piecemeal approach, and adopt a few automated features like CAS or CWS. However, with other platforms, these isolated solutions often do not provide interoperability, making future upgrades challenging and serving as a roadblock on the pathway to a fully unmanned mining fleet. This is where Mobius has the advantage.

Mobius is designed to allow a phased, low risk, cost-effective approach to automation. After setting up the Mobius command and control system, operations can add driver assist features that include CWS, CAS, and choreography which provides an extra layer of safety, as well as increases productivity through minimize queuing of haul trucks as well as hung shovel time. As an OEM agnostic platform, companies can scale later to add even more features to Mobius, such as auto-spotting and fatigue monitoring. Then, when it’s time to migrate to a completely driverless fleet, operations run shadow trials in Mobius to fine tune the switch to a fully autonomous process before letting the artificial intelligence take over production.




So when considering a collision warning system or collision avoidance system keep ASI’s Mobius CWS and Mobius CAS in mind. Unlike other solutions, Mobius allows easy scaling to more automated functions when the time is right, protecting your early investment on the pathway to autonomy.

Rethinking strategies to unlock productivity and improve sustainability is at the top of the list for companies in the mining industry. But challenges in rolling out substantive changes serve as one of the greatest hurdles for miners in 2017.

"As mines embrace digital, their core processes will become fully integrated, autonomous, remote and automated—capabilities made possible by a network of low cost, highly capable sensors that use internet of things (IoT) technologies."

The 2017 edition of Deloitte’s Tracking the Trends details how mining professionals are creating successful strategies for today’s ever-changing market conditions. For the second consecutive year, one of Deloitte’s top strategies is to invest in digital innovation.

“There are countless innovative ideas to improve productivity. Despite this, many mining companies are coming to realize that true innovation cannot be achieved by implementing isolated technology solutions.

Research by Deloitte's innovation practice shows that organizations considered successful serial innovators tend to approach innovation as an enterprise-wide differentiator, exhibiting capabilities across four building blocks: they employ a tailored approach to innovation; they structure the organization to house the innovation competency; they acquire and nurture the appropriate resources and skills; and they develop metrics and incentives to guide their performance.”

"Without an incremental, multi-phase approach to implementing new technology, the cost and unfamiliarity can stymy innovative solutions like autonomy."

Deloitte recognizes that without an incremental, multi-phase approach to implementing new technology, the cost and unfamiliarity can stymy innovative solutions like autonomy.

“The mining sector has been engaging in various forms of innovation for years. Driverless trucks and other forms of automation allow miners to set up remote operations, enhancing safety and efficiency. The use of sensors to monitor a wide range of factors—from tire pressure and road conditions to both equipment and labor performance—enables the collection of highly valuable data points. When parsed through advanced analytics, that data yields insight that can help companies reduce cost, streamline equipment maintenance, and prevent safety incidents.”

“As mines embrace digital, their core processes will become fully integrated, autonomous, remote and automated—capabilities made possible by a network of low cost, highly capable sensors that use internet of things (IoT) technologies. These digital mines will fully digitize engineering and asset information and integrate it with location-aware mobile devices to support an efficient and collaborative workforce.”




The mining industry continues to reinvent the future. The mood of cautious optimism in mining precipitates careful investment in the future. Companies face key choices about where and how to invest in 2017 – read the rest of Deloitte’s Tracking the Trends 2017 to learn about the other strategies being adopted this year.








The benefits autonomy will bring to mining operations are well known, but the way to transition to unmanned fleets is less clear. In this, the first in a trilogy of blog posts, we’ll demonstrate how an incremental, multi-phase approach can serve as a successful path to full scale autonomy.

A mining operation may be slow to adopt advantageous autonomous technology for a number of sensible reasons. The first is cost. Transitioning from a manned fleet to a robotic workforce requires a significant investment that puts autonomy out of the hands of many companies. The second is unfamiliarity. Managing artificial intelligence and advanced robotics isn’t quite as intuitive as hiring and training a human.



Another reason is short-term unproductivity. Operations simply can’t afford the temporary reduction in productivity during the migration process. In order to provide for a seamless transition, ASI offers a gradual approach to adopting this next generation technology.

Similar to the recently unveiled CNH Industrial autonomous concept tractor, this security robot is built on ASI’s hardware and software platform. Mobius, ASI’s command and control software enables a single operator to oversee the coordination and cooperation of multiple A-UGVs.



Driver assist. It’s a feature that comes with more and more vehicles offered by automakers over the last few years. The car industry understands that people are naturally wary of yielding control of their car over to artificial intelligence, and have rolled out driver assist technology to get individuals comfortable with a small degree of autonomy. Cars equipped with driver assist features can parallel park themselves and stay in their lanes while cruising on freeways. Driver assist features are also available for mining vehicles, and marks the first, affordable and low risk step into transforming from a manned to a fully autonomous fleet.

At ASI, our engineers have developed intelligent hardware and software that can be used to bring autonomous functionality to existing mining equipment. It all starts with Mobius FMS (Fleet Management System). Mobius FMS is an OEM agnostic command and control platform designed for interoperability and scalability. The primary functions of Mobius FMS include dispatch, position monitoring, and reporting functionality. Mobius FMS serves as a hub that allows for the integration of driver assist features like collision warning and avoidance systems (CWS/CAS), fatigue monitoring, and spotting assist.



The CWS module is comprised of an operator warning system which does not interact with vehicle actuation. Once Mobius FMS is setup, no additional hardware is needed for basic CWS functionality as it utilizes GPS proximity warnings. The base CWS module is also expandable to include sensor based detection along with projected path filters for additional intelligence.

ASI’s robust Mobius FMS and CWS module are cost-effective driver assist features suitable for mining companies looking to carefully integrate autonomy into their operations. The driver assist phase provides familiarity with intelligent technology at low-risk, while keeping manual control in the hands of humans.

It is the first step to achieving an unmanned, fully autonomous fleet. But before that can be realized, a second step involving partial-autonomy must be completed. Be sure to visit us soon to learn more about this next phase; and for more information about our offerings, visit us at www.asirobots.com today!

Every car maker and Silicon Valley giant seems to be getting into the autonomous vehicle game. That’s because fully autonomous driving is the future, and companies want to capture a slice of what will become a major, disruptive market. In fact, we don’t have to wait until some far-off date, as driverless technology is already being used, developed, and refined every single day.


One of the primary motivators for the rapid adoption of autonomous driving technology is its potential to dramatically reduce traffic collisions and save lives. In 2015, there were an estimated 35,000 motor vehicle deaths, with the majority of all crashes caused by human error. Having smart AI take the wheel can improve safety. It already is.



Proving grounds are where car makers send their vehicles for durability and misuse testing. These facilities feature miles of tracks that automotive companies use to put their latest model, or one up for recall, through extreme conditions so they can analyze how it performs, and evaluate it for manufacturing defects or design miscalculations.


In the past, a human had to sit in the driver’s seat and steer the vehicle aroundthe course. Inserting a person into an unproven test vehicle and sending them down very hazardous tracks which are purposefully designed with the worst imaginable road conditions. Injuries or even deaths could occur from rough durability tracks, jumps, vehicle rolls, and other scenarios, making the proving grounds a dangerous place – but not anymore.







At Autonomous Solutions Inc., we specialize in engineering independent vehicle automation systems that remove the human from the driver’s seat, and out of harm’s way. Our researchers have developed technology for proving ground automation, bringing safety to durability and misuse testing.

We’ve partnered with some of the largest automotive brands in the world to improve the safety and efficiency of their durability and misuse testing. Ford, Chrysler, Toyota, and Hyundai all trust ASI’s Mobius on their proving grounds.

We’ve even worked with the U.S. Air Force, applying our automation kits to drive vehicles pulling target sleds from a control center 50 miles away!



Our vehicle automation systems start with installing hardware into test vehicles to control steering, acceleration, braking, and transmission. Then, equipped with our intelligent Mobius command and control platform, remote operators are able to send the vehicle down specific drive paths. A single operator can even control multiple vehicles, interacting in the same area or different locations for increased productivity.
