SUMMARY

This guide provides a common approach to applying functional safety to autonomous systems and references international standards in the context of the mining industry and its current maturity. Clear expectations about communication requirements are also outlined to assist in the management of change and its effective implementation.

This document is a guide on the application of functional safety to new implementations of autonomous systems in surface and underground mining. It is intended as a starting point to help readers implementing autonomous systems navigate communication with other key stakeholders, but it is not an exact process to follow and does not serve as a standard or set of rules. Covers material in situ: mining and related supporting activities that contribute to the extraction of material, such as drilling, blasting, loading, transporting and unloading.

Non-deterministic systems are outside the scope of this guide. While functional safety is part of the broader scope of System Security, guidance on overall system security is outside the scope of this guide.
