Load haul dump vehicle kinematics and control
This paper examines the kinematics and control of a Load Haul Dump Vehicle used in underground mining operations. The aim of the work is to develop an autonomous guidance strategy. A linear, state-space, mathematical model of the vehicle is derived purely from geometric consideration of the vehicle and its desired path. Autonomous regulation of the vehicle is shown to be theoretically feasible using state variable feedback of displacement, heading, and curvature error. A relationship between stability and vehicle speed is derived. This expression forms the basis of an adaptive tuning strategy, which optimizes the vehicle's dynamic response.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
