DISPATCH Fleet Management System
Introduced 40 years ago as mining’s first-ever computer-based dispatching tool, the DISPATCH Fleet Management System has revolutionized the way mines work in real-time. Today, it is the most trusted FMS in the mining industry.
The system leverages three mathematical programming models – Linear Programming (LP), Dynamic Programming (DP), and Best Path (BP) — to... maximize your overall truck productivity by maintaining and updating a real-time model of the mine equipment, locations, and haulage roads. The system continuously calculates optimized truck assignments and sends them to truck operators automatically.
The Autonomous Haulage System (AHS)
The Autonomous Haulage System (AHS) is a comprehensive fleet management system for mines. The autonomous haul truck, jointly developed by Komatsu Ltd., Komatsu America Corp. and Modular Mining, is centrally controlled through a wireless network that integrates:
On-board vehicle controllers
High-precision global positioning
Obstacle detection and avoidance systems.
The system has full supervisory logic that utilizes complex data fusion to control the dump truck to safely operate through a load, haul and dump cycle and allow integration with other mine vehicles such as light vehicles, dozers, loaders, and graders.
