Autonomous Heavy Vehicles

Autonomous Heavy Vehicles

Nova Systems has been engaged by a major mining company to assist them with the introduction of autonomous vehicle technology into their operations.

The company had been trialling autonomous haulage but could not effectively measure the benefits and shortcomings of the available solutions. Nova Systems was able to create a set of objective measures for the system performance and then conduct a Testing & Evaluation (T&E) program to evaluate these measures.  Nova Systems worked as an integrated member of the mining company’s team, delivering and growing the autonomous haulage capability in the business and taking it from a small-scale trial to a site-wide operation critical to productivity.

Nova Systems was engaged to assist the same company to understand and codify the safety systems and controls for autonomous vehicles and drill rigs on the mine site.  Through collaboration with the client, Nova introduced a new methodology and structure that allowed the mining company to easily understand and communicate the safety of these systems, both in terms of design and operation.

Nova Systems remains a trusted advisor with this client and continues to assist the organisation with the deployment and commissioning of new autonomous haulage and drilling operations.
