Abstract
An automated haulage system is described that utilizes existing battery-powered face haulage vehicles modified such that they follow a guidepath defined by an electrically excited wire fixed to the mine roof. Rerouting of the haulage paths is accomplished by simply reconnecting the guidewires. The development of the system was carried out through a design phase, and the impact on safety, productivity, and cost effectiveness was studied.
