Visionstream's unique and custom built mesh network has enabled autonomous haul trucks at Solomon mine, resulting in 20% productivity gains. 

IT News reports that "since the autonomous haulage system (AHS) was deployed at Solomon in 2012, over 200 million tonnes (mt) of material has been safely moved,” it said.

“The integration of AHS into Solomon has seen a 20 percent productivity improvement compared to the regular fleet”."

FMG was running 33 Caterpillar and 793F trucks at Solomon as at September last year. The total number of trucks contracted to be delivered under the project is up to 45.

The entire Solomon Hub has an 802.11 wireless mesh network deployed by Visionstream. It ensures the autonomous haulage system will deliver a safe and efficient optimisation of the fleet of mining equipment.
