Liebherr advancing its autonomous truck development

first_imgPerrone Robotics (PRI) has a new agreement with Liebherr to support autonomous development for Liebherr mining trucks. PRI is currently working with Liebherr’s Mining Group in Newport News to integrate PRI’s MAX™ platform into their autonomy kit.  MAX will support certain functionality within Liebherr’s autonomy kit enabling the truck to perform autonomous haulage at mining locations worldwide.  This functionality will assist in performing the required manoeuvres precisely and reliably for efficient and safe operations. MAX functionality combined with Liebherr’s autonomous mining truck development will support the growing need for autonomy in surface mining.“At Perrone Robotics, we are used to taking on big mobility challenges, but from a size perspective this mining truck is the largest!” stated Paul Perrone, CEO and founder of Perrone Robotics. “That said we’re confident that the MAX platform can deliver the flexibility and functionality that Liebherr is looking for in their mining solution.  Already in a very short period of time we’ve been able to interface with the truck’s systems and drive it robotically.  Our ability to integrate to Liebherr’s perception solutions and control the vehicle correctly and safely meets Liebherr’s requirements.  Plus, the flexibility of our platform ensures that as Liebherr’s autonomous solutions evolve, MAX will be ready to handle them.”“We are impressed with Perrone Robotic’s capabilities and the flexibility of the MAX platform.” said James Whitfield, GM Research and Development. “We have been investigating autonomy for some time and we were pleased to find a capable platform with the flexibility and proven track record that MAX brings to our solution.  The open and agnostic concepts within MAX align with Liebherr’s approach to autonomy.  We look forward to working with Paul and his team on this project.”last_img read more
