Development of Autonomous Trucks in the Global Mining Sector, 2021
- Pages: 27
- Published: May 2021
- Report Code: GDMINTRS012
The popularity of autonomous haul trucks is gradually growing across surface mines, with miners taking advantage of improvements to productivity; reductions in accidents and operating costs; increased machine life and tyre life and lower fuel consumption.
As of May, 2021, GlobaData’s Mining Intelligence Center was tracking 769 autonomous haul trucks operating on surface mines across the globe. This compares to 476 at the same point in 2020, an increase of 61%.
The largest population of autonomous trucks is in Australia with 561, up from 381 a year earlier, followed by Canada (143), Chile (18) and Brazil (14).
The report analyses the development of autonomous haul trucks in the mining industry, tracking additions over time and specifying the exact brands and models used across each mine. Future plans for further additions or introductions of AHS are included as well as details of the benefits achieved from the use of autonomous trucks by miners.
