Autonomous System Safety
Delivering valuable context and education on system safety, its history in other industries, and the benefits it can provide in delivering safe systems balanced with a system that can be operated effectively.
System safety is the application of engineering and management principles, criteria and techniques to optimize safety within the constraints of operational effectiveness, time, and cost throughout all phases of the system lifecycle. Functional safety is part of this framework.
This is a sub-project under the Functional Safety for Autonomous Equipment project that covers overall system safety. This project is a white paper that will apply to:
- Automation in underground and surface mining contexts
- All autonomous mining systems
- The integration autonomous and semi-autonomous systems
- Complex integrated systems of systems
