A Rio Tinto iron ore shiploader in operation in the Pilbara

Top

A teleoperated shiploader designed to remotely control the loading iron ore is being trialled by Rio Tinto at a port in the Pilbara.CSIRO’s Minerals Down Under Flagship worked closely with Rio Tinto to develop the teleoperation control systems used in the shiploader. Rio Tinto chose CSIRO as a research partner because it has significant expertise in a number of technologies that had to come together to deliver a result. These technologies include image processing and projection, electronic communications, software engineering, sensor technologies and human factors engineering, along with a deep understanding of the mining process.
