Mining companies in the Americas, Europe, and Australia are increasingly turning to Autonomous Haulage Systems (AHS) as a solution for their mining operations. This shift is primarily driven by the need to reduce high labor costs and mitigate the potential hazards posed by challenging terrain. AHS is seen as a more cost-effective, reliable, and safe alternative to traditional mining methods. Beyond cost savings and safety improvements, AHS offers the potential to enhance productivity and efficiency in mining operations. These systems are capable of monitoring sustainability and safety metrics, further enhancing their appeal to mining firms looking to improve their environmental and safety practices. For instance, Mineral Resource and Hexagon AB collaborated to change safety, productivity, and sustainability in the area by offering an autonomous haulage solution for a fleet of 120 completely autonomous road trains in Australia. As a result, autonomous trains will eliminate the possibility of driver tiredness, save operational expenses, consume less fuel, and emit less emissions.

Bombardier, a Canadian company, offers the INTERFLO system, which is highly regarded for its applications in both industrial automated haulage systems and heavy haulage lines. This system is known for its ability to maximize rail capacity while requiring minimal wayside space, making it the preferred choice for mining companies seeking to optimize their operations.
