Autonomous haul trucks are often marketed as a silver bullet for safe and efficient operations. The technology developed is fantastic, as is the price tag, and full deployment is operationally and culturally challenging. To work through these challenges, mines are taking smaller, incremental steps to maximize the safety and productivity of their existing assets. The presentation will discuss the latest technology and management approaches to proximity detection and operator fatigue that set the stage for semi-autonomous systems and that address two leading causes of mining accidents involving mobile equipment: operator fatigue and blind spots around the machines.
