Autonomous control of underground mining vehicles using reactive navigation
Roberts, Jonathan M., Duff, Elliot S., Corke, Peter, Sikka, Pavan, Winstanley, Graeme J., & Cunningham, Jock (2000) Autonomous control of underground mining vehicles using reactive navigation. In Proceedings of the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA 2000), IEEE, San Francisco, CA.
Describes how many of the navigation techniques developed by the robotics research community over the last decade may be applied to a class of underground mining vehicles (LHDs and haul trucks). We review the current state-of-the-art in this area and conclude that there are essentially two basic methods of navigation applicable. We describe an implementation of a reactive navigation system on a 30 tonne LHD which has achieved full-speed operation at a production mine.
