Fleet — Predictable, Repeatable Performance

MineStar Fleet provides real-time visibility to cycle time, payload and other key operational parameters. It monitors machine locations and material movement and provides alerts of misroutes to ensure material is moved to the proper location.

Terrain for Loading — Get More Out Of Every Load

MineStar Terrain for loading is a machine guidance system that delivers real-time data in the cab—on everything from bucket positioning and bench height to ore bodies and volume of material cut and filled. That enables every operator to maximize machine efficiency, leading to better material management, more accurate grades and less rework and wear.

Detect Object Detection

MineStar Detect Object Detection combines radar and camera systems to automatically detect hazards within critical areas around trucks — primarily the front, rear and turning radius on each side. When objects enter these areas, Detect then pushes notifications via an in-cab display to warn the operator there are objects in the danger zone.

Detect Proximity Awareness — Give Your Operators Greater Awareness

Proximity Awareness tracks machines, site infrastructure or other mobile equipment and presents it to operators on an in-cab mine map display that indicates their position in relation to others.  Zones are displayed on the map and operators are notified when they enter restricted areas or exceed specified speed limits. The display also shows when two or more machines’ projected paths of travel intersect, warning operators of a potential collision.

Command for Hauling — Take Command of Your Hauling Operation

Command for hauling leverages other MineStar capabilities to provide the fully integrated operation of  autonomous mining systems. Autonomous trucks operate safely around other equipment, light vehicles and personnel. Command trucks respond to calls to the shovel, move into position, haul to dump points and even report for  maintenance — all  without an operator on board.
