CAT ®COMMAND MINING TECHNOLOGY
MINING AUTOMATION ISN’T ONE SIZE FITS ALL.
Keep your people safe, your operation efficient and your equipment running. Working with other Cat® MineStar™ System capability sets, Command Mining Technology brings together the technologies needed for fully-integrated operation of autonomous, semi-autonomous, and remotely-controlled mining systems. Command Mining Technology from SITECH Intermountain is proven to work seamlessly with and around all mine site activities, equipment and personnel, helping you work safely and productively in a wider range of challenging environments.
VARYING LEVELS OF OPERATOR CONTROL
Taking advantage of proven systems and technologies, as well as significant advances in remote sensing and guidance, Command Mining Technology delivers a range of equipment systems that require varying levels of operator involvement.
Remote control technology requires human operators for most machine functions, but removes the operators from the equipment itself. These systems enable operators to works from a safe location that may be well away from the physical job site.
Semi-autonomous systems allow operators to work from a remote location while automating significant portions of the work cycle, relieving operators of some of the most tedious or demanding tasks.
Autonomous solutions entirely eliminate the need for human machine operators. The machines are directed by a control system that tells them where to go and what to do, but their on-board intelligence systems “decide” on their own how to navigate to the prescribed work area and accomplish the assigned tasks.
All these solutions result in safer overall mine sites, with reduced human presence on the site itself. Plus, operations have the potential to be more efficient and productive, with less chance for operator injury or error.
