Autonomous Haulage Systems in Underground Mining What is Required for Success? Adrian Pratt INTERNATIONAL MINE MANAGEMENT 2016 22 .
Hexagon introduces HxGN Dynamic Haulage for optimized truck movement. As part of the MineSight Schedule Optimizer (MSSO) platform, Dynamic Haulage ensures the best, most efficient path to destinations, regardless of changes in haul roads and routes between operational phases and between schedule runs.
In the area of safety, AHS is significantly safer than in conventional mining environments where even a small truck driving error could cause a serious accident. AHS enabled customer productivity has improved, reducing load and haul unit costs by more than 15%, compared to conventional haulage methods.
of trucking routes. This has enabled the potential for mining and dump locations to be cut into smaller portions, block and bench. From this, multiple options for haulage routes and destinations can be calculated to best achieve a predefined objective. The benefit of additional detail in a haulage model has not been quantified.
