Minetruck Automation provides a full autonomous cycle with automated dump function and programmed routes. One operator can control both loaders and trucks from the same operator station. The Minetruck can be operated in a mixed fleet of autonomous vehicles from various OEMs through the Epiroc Traffic management system.
Minetruck Automation is built on the same proven components, software platform and technology as Scooptram Automation.
As safety always is important both to us and our customers, removing the operator from the machine to a control room gives a great impact in safety. Mines will also be able to operate during the shift changes and blasting in the mine which improves productivity massively.
