Abstract
For mining, teleoperation refers to the distant control of mining machinery from a protected operator compartment located out of the line of sight to the extraction site. Successful teleoperated mining systems have recently been developed to extract the extensive coal reserves in highwalls, that is, coal seams uncovered during surface strip mining operations or exposed in mountaintop ridges.
