Achieving the higher level of safety and productivity, and improving efficiency of overall management and operation have become a challenge for customers in mining industry.
Among these challenges, having dump trucks efficiently convey the materials excavated by ultra-large hydraulic excavators and the like holds a key to raising productivity.
Hitachi Construction Machinery is introducing an Autonomous Haulage System (AHS), autonomous operation of mining dump trucks with the aim of improving productivity and safety at customers' mining sites.
AHS travels autonomously while stabilizing its body when it avoids obstacles on an unpaved haul road on which other vehicles and machines are coming and going.
Achieving Autonomous Operation at Mines
We aim to improve the productivity and safety of mining operations through the development of autonomous operation of ultra-large hydraulic excavators and dump trucks.
We will continuously work on resolving issues which our customers face in the mining sites.
