Autonomous Road Trains for Long Haul Mining

Presented by

Lee Baldwin – Hexagon's Autonomy & Positioning division

About this talk

How can we make mining, construction and other industrial applications more efficient, safe and sustainable? In long haul mining, resource extraction in remote areas is a challenge with the high cost of transporting materials and labour, not to mention travel-fatigued drivers manually operating road trains. Autonomous road trains can solve these challenges. In this webinar, Hexagon’s Autonomy & Positioning divisions’ core autonomy segment director Lee Baldwin shares Hexagon's work with Mineral Resources Limited in Western Australia to develop the world’s first autonomous road train with autonomous platooning capabilities. He’ll explain how the autonomous road train improves the safety of long-range haulage, provides cost-efficiencies and reduces fuel emissions to reach sustainability goals faster. Join us for this webinar to discover how this innovative solution benefits bulk haulage in other off-road primary industries beyond mining.
