Hexagon Mining recently reported two capabilities within MineOperate Pro OP help coordinate the tasks of shovels, trucks, and dozers to increase productivity and reduce safety risks. High- and low-precision shovels and dozers can leverage the onboard software and that of a centralized server, Hexagon’s Fleet Management System (FMS), to coordinate cleanup at the loading site. The ﬂipside of the coin is a capability that coordinates trucks and dozers at the dump site.
Both capabilities “come from a customer who wanted to avoid metal-to-metal accidents and become more productive,” said Marcelo Romero, senior product portfolio manager, Hexagon Mining. “After, the customer tested them, they expanded the good practice for the rest of their mines.”
