ABD Solutions has signed an agreement with Jevons Robotics to integrate Indigo Drive – a full stack system of autonomy and communications – with Jevons Robotics’ suite of automation-enabled industrial electric vehicles.
These vehicles will be operated automatically and supervised from a central control room improving safety and streamlining the mining process, both operationally and financially.
Todd Peate, CEO of Jevons Robotics, says: “We are delighted to announce a long-term partnership with ABD Solutions, a globally regarded automation company with substantial experience working with autonomous mining solution providers.
