Aiming to make mining more efficient, the Komatsu Innovative Autonomous Haulage Vehicles looks to help enhance the capabilities of construction trucks and maximize hauling capabilities.

The passenger cabin on traditional construction trucks is essential to ensuring that drivers and passengers are kept safe and to enable operation of the vehicle. The Komatsu Innovative Autonomous Haulage Vehicle, however, does away with the passenger cabin altogether. This enables the autonomous vehicle to take more cargo and be even better with regard to efficiency.

The Komatsu Innovative Autonomous Haulage Vehicle does away with drivers inside the truck, which means there's a smaller margin of error when it comes to complex maneuvers. Those controlling the construction trucks can do so with full visibility to reduce or even eliminate the risk of accidents.
