  • UK-based global mining major, Anglo American, partners with Autonomous Solutions, Inc. for a multi-year autonomous haulage program.


    PETERSBORO, UTAH—December 15, 2014. Representatives from Anglo American recently announced their partnership with Autonomous Solutions, Inc. (ASI). The goal of the multi-year relationship is to deliver enhanced productivity, sustainability, and safety through mining vehicle automation systems for the company's haulage operations. The joint effort is part of Anglo American’s FutureSmart™ initiative through which the company is partnering with third party technology groups like ASI to drive innovation within the mining industry.

    Facing challenges such as lower commodity prices, declining grades of ore deposits, and difficulty of access to ore bodies, the mining industry "needs to leap forward twenty years in five," said Tony O'Neill, Anglo American’s Group Director for Technical and Sustainability, at 3DExperience Forum. To help drive this innovation, Anglo American is working with ASI automation engineers to create fully autonomous, teleoperated, and remote control haulage operations.

    "Anglo American is at the forefront of innovation in the mining industry and they have been the ideal partner in creating disruptive mining solutions," said President and CEO of ASI, Mel Torrie. As Anglo American’s OEM-independent automation partner, ASI leverages more than fourteen years of experience developing robotic solutions for the mining, farming, automotive, industrial, and military industries. Development and testing of the autonomous mining systems have already commenced with active field trials with Anglo American and at ASI's new 100 acre mining proving ground in northern Utah.

  • For the second consecutive year, Autonomous Solutions, Inc. was recognized by the Robotics Business Review as one of the Top 50 robotics companies to watch in the 2015 RBR50.


    FRAMINGHAM, MA—FEBRARY 16, 2015. Robotics Business Review (RBR) unveiled its fourth annual RBR50 list, naming Autonomous Solutions, Inc. (ASI) as one of the most noteworthy companies in the global robotics industry for the second consecutive year.

    With new companies entering the industry each year, the robotics field is becoming increasingly competitive. Of those companies, the RBR50 list outlines those that should be kept on the business and investment radar. RBR50 companies are recognized based on their innovation, groundbreaking application(s), commercial success and potential, and represent many different levels and facets of the robotics ecosystem.

    “We’re honored to be included on the RBR50 for the second straight year,” said Mel Torrie, President and CEO of ASI. “Being included on this list shows that the members of the robotics community recognize the significant contribution that ASI has made and is making to the industry.”

    The RBR50 list is an international compilation that spans eleven countries. The list includes large conglomerates but also represents lesser-known startups which make up 20% of the list.

    The RBR50 list is dynamic, with robotics companies entering and leaving on an annual basis. Thus, the list is an indication of where the global robotics industry as a whole is moving.

    “2015: Year of the Inflection Point in robotics,” said Tom Green, RBR Editor in Chief. “What a great time to be counted among the global best in the fastest rising industry in the world. Once again, the robotics community has done a stellar job in selecting those few to represent all.”
