AutoMine® for Trucks turns Sandvik’s intelligent mining trucks into unmanned robots that just keep running. Now including new functions such as OptiMine® connectivity, upgraded Access Control System for greater flexibility, and the ability to extend the truck fleet’s autonomous production cycles from underground to surface tipping; they are safer, more efficient with a lower cost per ton.


Surface Navigation

Underground trucks that now can run on the surface

Autonomous Trucks can now work both underground and on the surface. The system uses a seamless automatic handover between the underground and surface positioning system where trucks keep moving without stopping at the portal. After dumping, they immediately continue with the next production cycle to get another load from the underground.

Sandvik AutoMine for Trucks with upgraded ACS

Upgraded Access Control System

Greater flexibility with upgraded ACS

The 3rd generation ACS is a generic safety solution that can be applied to different mining methods and areas. It enables the movement of machines between zones without hardware changes or complex configurations. Zones can be merged into larger automation areas or split separately to allow manual operations. Tripping a safety barrier only stops machines that are an immediate hazard in the closest zone. The fleet in other zones keeps on running.

Sandvik AutoMine for Trucks offers full integration with OptiMine

Full integration with OptiMine®

AutoMine® connects seamlessly to OptiMine®, which automatically commands trucks to execute production missions, dynamically adjusting trucks based on production requirements and traffic flow. OptiMine® Scheduler enables efficient production planning while OptiMine® Task Management gives you real-time information to improve operational productivity and profitability. Other benefits of OptiMine® include location tracking, mine visualization, and predictive analytics to give you full operational transparency. Integrated with My Sandvik Productivity, you keep track of your trucks condition and know the real-time status of your fleet.
