Flexible Infrastructure-Free Navigation for Vehicles in Underground Mines
J. Larsson, M. Broxvall, and A. Saffiotti
During the last decade, mining companies and mobile equipment
manufacturers have pursued improved efficiency, productivity, and safety
in underground mining operations by automating some of the functions of
underground vehicles. The work presented in this paper is the result of
an effort to develop new flexible infrastructureless guidance system for
autonomous tramming of center-articulated underground mining vehicles.
