Frequently Asked Questions

Below are a few questions which we have been asked, if you have any questions not covered in the below, please don’t hesitate to contact us through our contact page.

Can I use my current fleet? Or do we need to acquire new vehicles and assets that already have the modern systems on board to which we could then apply the automation technology?

No, one of the benefits of our technology is that you avoid the significant capital cost of purchasing new assets, as we can automate any asset you already have, regardless of the age, model or make. You can read more about this here.

We have existing systems such as a Fleet Management System and a Traffic Management System – will the new technology be able to communicate with these?

Our technology is interoperable which means that it doesn’t matter what systems you may already have in place, our technology will be able to communicate with these systems. You can read more about our technology here.

If I am not ready to fully automate the mining operation, would you still be able to automate just a part of it?

We will work with you to determine the best automation solution to meet your unique operational requirements, whether that is a basic level of automation such as remote control, right up to full automation and smart vehicles. We will partner with you in your automation journey, planning for what you need now and what you will need in the future. Learn more about the levels of automation we offer here.

The remote location of our operation means that we often experience a loss of communications. How does this impact our autonomous fleet? Do we need to expect some downtime?

No, your automated vehicle will continue to operate, it will always complete its mission, even when communications are down. This means that there is no time lost or delays due to downtime.
