The World’s Biggest Robot: Rio Tinto’s Intelligent Mine



Rio Tinto (RIO) made history in 2017 with the first successful 100-kilometre journey of an autonomous train.

This, however, was simply an early step in the mining giant's goal of creating an artificial intelligence (AI)-driven mine site.

Since that train's first journey, Rio has tested the auto rail network — known as AutoHaul — for over three million kilometres of travel, working out all the kinks to make sure its ready for large-scale production.
