Stantec Generation AV - AVs & Mining

Autonomous Vehicles & Mining

An evolutionary step forward

Mining operators long ago turned to automation to improve safety and efficiency. In the last decade, automation has moved beyond familiar uses like remote controls and teleoperation to full automation of drilling, loading, and hauling, and even full equipment electrification and automation. These innovations open new possibilities for working in previously inaccessible locations. 

Introducing battery electric automated vehicles (BEAVs) into these environments can benefit the owner, workers, and surrounding community tremendously. From moving people and equipment to performing such critical mining activities as drilling, loading, and hauling, BEAVs can provide a wide range of services in and around a mine, all contributing to safer and more efficient mining operations.
