But now let’s move to the forward-thinking mine and just imagine: two stories tall giant hauler with 250 Ton payload on the board it’s impressive in itself. Do you want to be surprised even more? To do this, you need to look inside the cabin and see there … anyone.
The future has arrived with remote control systems which move operators out of cabins and away from hazards.
Autonomous CAT and KOMATSU haulers are directed by a control system. It tells them what to do and where to go. Intelligence on-board systems enable vehicles to “choose” how to go to the prescribed job site area and accomplish the tasks. For example an autonomous hauling truck, can choose the best path from where it’s located, through an ever-changing map of the mine to where the mine control center tells it to go.
