Autonomous Trucks Agreement
The first commercial autonomous solution, providing the transportation of limestone from an open pit mine to a neighbouring port, was signed in Norway by Volvo Trucks.
The route which stretches 5km will see six autonomous Volvo FH trucks navigate through tunnels, between the mine and the crusher.
Tests were successfully carried out in 2018, with the solution expected to become fully operational by the end of 2019.
Instead of buying autonomous trucks, the customer would buy a total transport service and pay per tonne delivered.
The ground breaking agreement follows recent successful automation activities involving mining, sugar cane harvesting and refuse collection.
