Komatsu's Environmental and Social Activities Enhancing Quality of Life


Mitigating Climate Change  Autonomous Haulage System (AHS)

The Autonomous Haulage System (AHS) consists of unmanned dump trucks, manned non-truck vehicles, and an operation management system that manages the entire mining operation, allowing for fleet operations with fewer personnel.

It not only frees workers from harsh labor conditions, but also makes it possible to reduce costs. Additionally, the AHS improves safety by greatly reducing the number of accidents due to human error.

In addition, the system's optimized automatic controls reduce sudden acceleration, revving, and abrupt steering resulting in greater fuel efficiency (L/H) and tire life compared to manned operations in general.
