IMPLEMENTATION OF AUTONOMOUS SYSTEMS (2nd Edition)

Given the rapid pace of technological changes, the project group is working on the second edition of the Guideline for the Implementation of Autonomous Systems in Mining, which is a high-level checklist and playbook for implementing autonomous systems in mining so that mining operations can achieve its safety and productivity benefits through the aid of common practices.

The mining industry is increasingly embracing automation as a safety and productivity enabler and as a critical factor in making future mining methods sustainable. The first edition of the guideline guideline, published in April 2019, aims to communicate and educate using current industry practices and common terms of reference and provides guidance on justifying, planning, developing, testing, implementing, and executing autonomous systems.

THE GUIDELINE:

  • Provides a high-level checklist and playbook for implementation
  • Outlines the risks and benefits of autonomous mining
  • Offers a global and unified understanding to influence how key stakeholders approach autonomous mining
  • Enables future autonomous mining innovation with the aid of common practices
  • Communicates that implementation can only be facilitated through cooperation between involved parties, including operators, OEMs, OTMs, system integrators, regulators and the wider community

KEY TOPICS:

  • Change management
  • Business case
  • Health and safety
  • Regulations
  • Community and social impact
  • Operational readiness and deployment
