Mining is a highly competitive industry where leveraging new technology and techniques to improve efficiency and profitability of operations is imperative. Today's technology in autonomous vehicles/machine control enable improved system uptime and reduced operating costs.
Difficult conditions, changing mining environments, and busy and congested work areas are hurdles and impediments to positioning, making vehicle automation extremely difficult.
Mining automation, including automated haulage systems, represents a significant opportunity for cost savings and increased productivity. Applanix POS LV, our GNSS-aided inertial positoning system, is a critical component for implemeting mining automation in vehicles.
Designed to operate under the most difficult conditions and environments, POS LV enables accurate positioning . POS LV is a compact, fully integrated, turnkey position and orientation system which utilizes integrated inertial technology to generate stable, reliable and repeatable positioning solutions for mining operations.
