Suncor was the first North American miner to adopt autonomous hauler technology on a large scale. Nearly a year ago, the company announced it would incrementally roll out a f leet of autonomous haulers at its oil sands mines over the course of the next six years, starting with its North Steepbank mine. In total, the f leet would eventually comprise at least 150 Komatsu haulers. This presentation will offer an insight as to how those decisions were made.
