‘Autonomy in a box’ can help future-proof mines

A veteran of Australia’s evolving mining autonomy market says successful delivery of autonomy 2.0 technology at one of the country’s biggest iron ore mines – “after quite a bit of pain” – could speed disruption of the industry’s global mobile asset supply chain in the next decade.

Speaking at the Austmine Mining Innovation Roadshow in Perth, Western Australia, Roy Hill chief operating officer Anthony Kirke said large-scale deployment of equipment-agnostic automation and fleet management software and hardware at the major Pilbara operation was a potential game changer.

“We certainly think we’ve got a platform that will be really critical for us for the next decade,” he said.

“[We will] be able to handle all the things that are thrown at us in terms of electrification and what we need to do to optimise our orebody.”
