Mining Looks To Electric, Autonomous Vehicles To Reduce Costs And Improve Efficiency

As innovation progresses, the technology that underpins the way businesses operate is changing, with concerns about the environment and efficiencies helping to inform decisions.

In the mining sector, for example, Chinese firm SANY recently announced it had deployed two autonomous, electric mining trucks.

According to the company, the SKT90E wide-body mining trucks had been able to demonstrate “high-level environmental identification and positioning capacity.” SANY added that the truck was able to “independently complete route-tracking, load and unload of materials, and parking.”
