Kikki's Workshop Q&A: Let's ask Kikki ! Kikki's Workshop
Why do we need a driverless trucks ?
A dump truck at mines requires four to five operators because it keeps running for 24 hours. A huge mine may need one hundred dump trucks, which means it requires about four hundred to five hundred operators. Many mines exist in harsh environments such as at a high place on a mountain or within very cold districts that make it hard to find enough workers. Driverless trucks reduce the hardship to operators. Plus, by moving at a proper speed and keeping a stable operation, it lowers maintenance fees, the amount of fuel, and carbon dioxide emission. Driverless trucks are kind to both people and environment!
