In early 2018, Komatsu celebrated 10 years of commercial deployment of AHS, with over than 100 of our autonomous trucks operating in Australia, and North and South America. As of the end of 2017 our AHS trucks had safely, efficiently and economically hauled 1.5 billion tonnes of materials.
Our AHS technology has delivered proven benefits in safety, productivity, environmental resistance and system flexibility in an array of mining environments. In particular, AHS trucks are significantly safer than conventional mining operations.
Komatsu has also successfully retrofitted AHS technology to existing conventionally operated trucks, and is now committed to accelerating the deployment of automation to minesites throughout the world.
