Progressive automation is profoundly changing the safety and economics of mining where macroeconomic challenges, including commodity prices and labour shortages, impact the feasibility of projects. In this episode, we’re talking about automated haulage in mining. As ore bodies become scarcer, companies must explore more remote areas to find minerals. A new solution for automated haulage has made these projects more feasible. Launched by MRL using Hexagon technology, the world’s first automated road-train solution impacts how we move resources.
We sat down with Rob Daw, CTO of Hexagon’s Mining division, to find out more.
