Australian Mining reported that BHP Mitsubishi Alliance is set to introduce 34 autonomous trucks at the Daunia coal mine in central Queensland through a AUD 100 million investment. The first Caterpillar autonomous trucks will start work from February next year, with the full rollout expected to complete by the end of 2021. Queensland’s auto electrical and mechanical services provider, NB Industries will complete the light vehicle fleet conversion, and Brisbane-based radio communication experts, Radlink Communications will install wireless communication hardware across the Daunia mine.

The rollout will also create 150 additional project roles for BMA employees and contractors, on top of 56 new permanent roles on site.

BHP had planned to introduce up to 500 additional autonomous trucks at its iron and coal operations in Australia, a plan that the company revealed in July last year.
