AUTONOMOUS MINING VEHICLES

There is a relatively uniform understanding in the industry that autonomous driving may first land in the mining industry because of its closed environment and relatively simple elements of transportation. However, the environment in the mining area is relatively harsh. The severe cold and heat, sand, dust, rain, snow, and strong vibrations caused by rugged roads are a great test for the core sensor LiDAR of the unmanned mining vehicle.
Temperature requirement for high-resolution lidar is between -40°C to 85°C. It supports -40°C starting to ensure that the lidar can normally work all year round. At the same time, the 300-line HD lidar uses a 1550nm light source. Compared with a 905nm light source, the 1550nm light source is safer  to the human eye,  has stronger penetration to smoke and dust, and can still maintain high performance under rain and snow and other weather conditions.
It meets the design of vehicle regulations and the use of established vehicle components, so that the 300-line high-resolution LiDAR can adapt to the long-term severe vibration of the mining area and optimize its life cycle.
