Komatsu is known as one of the world's largest developers of mining equipment. It turns out everything from draglines, shovels and trucks for surface mining to a range of underground loaders and trucks.

It is also a pioneer in the autonomous haulage space, It rolled out its first autonomous trucks in 2008 in Australia and now has 650 driverless trucks at 22 mine sites around the world.
