autonomous solutions, inc and liebherr mining equipment newport news co. announce collaboration towards production of autonomous ready haul trucks | asi
OCTOBER 31, 2017 Autonomous Solutions, Inc. (ASI) and Liebherr Mining Equipment Newport News Co. (Liebherr) are pleased to announce that Liebherrs new autonomous ready haul trucks will be compatible with ASIs autonomous command and control platform; MOBIUS. Liebherrs vision of an autonomous haul truck includes an open interface that enables the truck to integrate to ASIs Mobius platform. Liebherrs autonomous vehicles can be controlled under an OEM agnostic command system for autonomous vehicles, providing maximum flexibility for their customers.
By adopting the Mobius platform, Liebherr is poised to differentiate its autonomous vehicles by addressing the market need for interoperability and openness, explains ASIs Drew Larsen, Director of Business Development over Mining. I believe the market will welcome Liebherrs decision.
Liebherr has integrated with the Mobius protocols for its vehicle control interface, rather than establishing a proprietary command and control platform on its own. This move to an open platform will provide much needed flexibility to their customers when integrating different autonomous vehicle types throughout a mine site.
Autonomous Solutions, Inc. is a world leader in vehicle automation. ASIs Mobius platform provides an OEM-agnostic, interoperable command and control software solution for autonomous vehicles. Mobius enables mine operations to integrate a variety of mining based vehicles under a comprehensive platform.
