Overcoming preconceptions for a successful launch of autonomous haulage

Mining Engineering, 2014, Vol. 66, No. 11, pp. 45-45
Humphrey, James


PREVIEW:

There is a natural resistance to change in any form. When it comes to implementing a game-changing technology like autonomous haulage on an operating mine site, the resistance can at times appear insurmountable. Whether based on real information or misguided preconceptions, it’s essential that we don’t underestimate the effort it will take to overcome this resistance, while clearly recognizing when it’s worth the effort.

These realizations did not happen overnight for sites where autonomous haulage has been implemented. Nor did they happen overnight for manufacturers of autonomous mining equipment.
