MAIN STORY

Autonomous Volvo Trucks Working at Norway Mine


Volvo Trucks says it is successfully testing six autonomous trucks that are hauling limestone from an open-pit mine in Velfjord, Norway. The Swedish truck manufacturer says in a news release its agreement with mining company Brønnøy Kalk AS is its first commercial solution involving autonomous trucks. The FH-model trucks travel 5 km through tunnels and outdoors from the mine to a crusher which pulverizes the limestone before it is loaded onto a nearby ship. A safety driver sits in the cab during testing, but in actual use the trucks are completely autonomous and are managed by the operator of a wheel loader. Tests will continue, and the solution is to become fully operational by the end of 2019, Volvo Trucks says.
