Robot control of a 3,500 tonne mining machine
Roberts, Jonathan M., Winstanley, Graeme J., & Corke, Peter I. (1999) Robot control of a 3,500 tonne mining machine. In Proceedings of the 8th IEEE International Workshop of Robot and Human Interaction (RO-MAN '99), IEEE, Pisa, Italy, pp. 213-218.
The mining industry is highly suitable for the application of robotics and automation technology since the work is arduous, dangerous and often repetitive. This paper describes the development of an automation system for a physically large and complex field robotic system - a 3,500 tonne mining machine (a dragline). The major components of the system are discussed with a particular emphasis on the machine/operator interface. A very important aspect of this system is that it must work cooperatively with a human operator, seamlessly passing the control back and forth in order to achieve the main aim - increased productivity.
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.
