Mobile Equipment Open Data Consensus Guideline

This guideline aims to create a common industry vision for the seamless access and use of mobile equipment data across the mine cycle. It identifies onboard datasets that should be openly available to equipment owners in a real-time, read-only format. It also identifies an initial list of the open data elements for onboard mobile mining equipment. With ongoing advances in mining technology (e.g. growing numbers of autonomous vehicles and greater connectivity and integration), large volumes of data related to the real-time and historical performance of mobile assets. To extract maximum value from these data, however, field operators need to be able to access them. At the same time, OEMs’ intellectual property rights must also be protected. This common vision, therefore, is needed before any industry-wide technical equipment connectivity standards can emerge.

This guideline was developed by the Data Access and Usage Working Group.
