Directing massive mining haul trucks to the right place at the right time is fundamental to a mine's operating efficiency and the bottom line. Each load of ore, depending on its quality, must be assigned to its proper location in the mine.
Reliable real-time positioning is required to optimize truck assignment. Fleet, a capability set in Cat MineStar System, combines Trimble's specially designed display with integrated GPS board and unique wireless IP network communication. Fleet tracks the movement of the vehicles throughout the mine and directs the trucks to their destination. This controls traffic and avoids costly downtime.
