Truck and shovel mining today is anything but “conventional.” Most mines now utilise advanced fleet management systems (FMS) and data analytics to monitor their fleets in real time – everything from payload to tyre conditions, engine performance and fuel management. The number of mines trialling or planning to trial fully autonomous machines or at least teleremote machines is increasing every single month as the benefits are proven and the hardware gets more affordable. The equipment OEMs themselves are planning for the future with cabless machines, machines running on LNG or electric power, and the use of geofencing, telematics and greater degrees of digitalisation.

This conference will be the first load and haul event of its kind – one that is focussed on this topic but which has a firmly future mining emphasis. It is being held in the worldwide hub of Singapore, therefore tapping into the mining markets of Asia and Australasia and further afield, making it a truly global gathering.
