Scania and Rio Tinto test autonomous truck
https://roboticsandautomationnews.com/2018/12/19/scania-and-rio-tinto-trialling-autonomous-truck-in-western-australian-mine/20332/ Truckmaker Scania and mining giant Rio Tinto are testing an autonomous truck in a Western Australian mine. The first phase of the trial started in August 2018 and involves a Scania XT 8×4 autonomous tipper truck working separately from Dampier’s active operations. During this initial stage, a safety driver rides in the vehicle to observe the truck’s performance and, if necessary, intervenes. In subsequent phases, additional autonomous Scania trucks will be added to develop vehicle-to-vehicle awareness and intelligent fleet supervisory controls.

Rio Tinto Moving Forward With New $2.2 Billion "Intelligent" Mine in the Pilbara
On the agenda for Rio Tinto in 2018 is moving forward with a $2.2 billion “intelligent” iron ore mine in the Pilbara. The proposed plan is to fully integrate advanced robotics, driverless trucks and driverless trains into the Koodaideri Mine. Rio Tinto’s head of iron ore Chris Salisbury has confirmed that feasibility studies are already underway to demonstrate the economics of the plan. "We will bring all our technologies into a single place with a mine that is purpose-built to adapt those technologies.” "We are calling it our intelligent mine." Rio anticipates that the Koodaideri mine will produce 40 million tonnes per year by 2021, though this could grow to 70 million tonnes or more. This will add to the 300 million tonnes of iron ore Rio Tinto already extracts from its Australian mines. The Koodaideri “intelligent” mine fits into Rio’s strategy of producing a higher quality of ore, which China is increasingly preferring. Rio Tinto has highlighted the growing price gap between high grade and low grade ore. "We've seen the discount grow from 30 per cent in the first three quarters to over 40 per cent," Chris Salisbury said. Rio already runs an operations centre in Perth which controls many activities on its mines from 1,500km away. It is unknown right now as to how many employees the Koodaideri mine will support and when construction will begin. https://www.iseekplant.com.au/blog/rio-tinto-moving-forward-new-2-2-billion-mine-pilbara/ Source: Rio Tinto, Fairfax, AFR

Komatsu Autonomous Dump Truck
The self-driving truck doesn’t really have a front or back. It can drive in either direction equally well thanks to four-wheel steering, which in turn means a strip mine doesn’t need to allocate space for one of the massive vehicles to turn around after each trip so a driver can see where they’re going. It can simply shuttle back and forth, reversing direction as needed. If you like DPCcars videos please subscribe: https://goo.gl/BSIaFc The latest version of its Autonomous Haulage System dump truck, however, was designed from the ground up to be completely autonomous. As you can see, there’s no longer a driver’s cab. In fact, aside from the direction the dumping bed raises, the self-driving truck doesn’t really have a front or back. It can drive in either direction equally well thanks to four-wheel steering, which in turn means a strip mine doesn’t need to allocate space for one of the massive vehicles to turn around after each trip so a driver can see where they’re going. It can simply shuttle back and forth, reversing direction as needed. The other advantage to being able to operate in either direction is that Komatsu was able to design the new autonomous truck so that weight was evenly distributed between all four wheels, allowing it to maximize its payload—over 250 tons—which in turn means less trips back and forth to be emptied.

Robofuel - Automated Robotic Refuelling for Mining  Dump Trucks
http://www.scottautomation.com/mining-technology/ Robofuel’s automated refuelling involves the application of a robotic arm to refuel conventional mining equipment to both increase productive hours and efficiency of trucks and reduce cash costs on site. Typically, traditional fuel tanks are manned by at least one person at all times and trucks can spend up to one hour per day travelling to refuel in isolated areas away from the pit. As there is no manning required for an automated refuelling solution, refuelling stations are able to be placed “on the circuit” or even “in-pit” so trucks can significantly reduce the amount of time dedicated to and from fuel stations each day. Scott Automation & Robotics Robofuel system uses a state-of-the-art vision sensing and detection system which allows the robot to locate the position and orientation of the truck’s fuel tank. This information is used to couple the fuel nozzle with the tank. Fuel spillages are minimised through the controlled coupling and pumping, mitigating the risk of environmental contamination.

Aker Wirth and Rio Tinto - Mobile Tunnel Miner (MTM) Full Version
Aker Wirth GmbH - Mobile Tunnel Miner Revolution in underground mining Together with Rio Tinto, one of the world's largest mining companies, Aker Wirth developed a new, innovative tunnel boring system for underground tunneling and mining and the Mobile Tunnel Miner (MTM). The machine concept combines the flexibility of a roadheader with the robustness of a tunnel boring machine. The knowledge gained from a previous version developed and tested already by Aker Wirth is also exploited. The self-propelled machine moves on a crawler and a walking mechanism and excavates rock with six powerful hydraulically actuated arms fitted with disc cutters. The muck is conveyed to the rear of the machine by a loading apron with loading disks and via a chain conveyor where it is loaded. This new tunneling system is part of Rio Tinto's Mine of the Future™ programme and will be tested in a full-scale trial at the Rio Tinto Northparkes copper mine in Australia this year. Performance The MTM 6 sets new standards in mining development. In comparison to drill and blast, the MTM 6 is designed to more than double current performance with a potential tunneling rate of of 10 m per day. Energy efficiency With undercutting technology, the MTM 6 is especially efficient with tunneling in hard rock (up to max. 300 MPa). The considerably lower tensile strength of the rock when compared to compressive strength is exploited in this respect. The roller cutters are positioned at a slight angle to the cutter arms, thus undercutting the rock and removing pieces about the size of the palm of a hand. The energy required for undercutting is about half that used for conventional disc cutters on traditional tunnel boring machines. Flexibility & mobility The Mobile Tunnel Miner 6 is able to cut rectangular or horseshoe-shaped cross-sections in addition to circular tunnels with a bore diameter of up to 6 m. This permits the direct boring of the desired tunnel shape, whereas the lower part of a round cross section usually needs to be backfilled where a conventional tunnel boring machine is used. With a flexible bore diameter of up to 6 m, the self-propelled Mobile Tunnel Miner can be used for a variety of applications. The machine is also an innovation in terms of its mobility: it can move flexibly forward using a walking mechanism and backward with a crawler. Thanks to several swivel joints, the turning radius of the 75 m long machine is only 30 m. This means it can master considerably tighter curves than a classic tunnel boring machine which has a turning radius of approximately 500 m under comparable conditions of use. Safety In contrast to drill and blast, which up until now has been the usual method employed in rock of this strength, tunneling with the MTM requires considerably less work from personnel at the tunnel face. The machine is operated from a central control cabin located on the machine itself. The high degree of automation minimises contact between personnel and both moving components and rock. Thanks to its flexibility, the MTM can be easily driven away from the tunnel face for maintenance purposes, which also contributes to the safety of operating personnel. "We will revolutionise safety and efficiency in underground mining with the new Mobile Tunnel Miner", says Einar Brønlund, CEO at Aker Wirth with absolute conviction. "This innovative technology will improve health, safety and environmental protection significantly and makes working conditions more attractive."

iQMatic Demo - Autonomous mining trucks scenario
This scenario demonstrates a number of autonomous radio-controlled scaled trucks in a mine. Typically the main function of trucks in a mine is to transport debris from one place to another (from a loading site to an unloading site). In some other place, a human operator is in charge of the whole operation using a "command central" where he can assign missions to trucks and solve remotely unexpected events. The trucks are totally autonomous on- and off-road. In off-road scenarios they use an online RRT planner to compute feasible paths to the destination.
