March 9, 2022 -- SafeAI, a leader in developing autonomous technology for heavy equipment, and MACA, one of the world’s leading diversified contracting groups, today announced a partnership to retrofit a fleet of 100 mixed vehicles. Together with SafeAI’s Australian partner, Position Partners, the companies will create one of the largest autonomous heavy equipment fleets in Australia, powering safer, more productive and more cost-effective mine sites.
“With SafeAI’s scalable, AI-powered technology, we can quickly deploy autonomous heavy equipment across all of our sites—creating safer, more productive operations and setting a new standard for our industry."
“Working collaboratively with the SafeAI engineering team to successfully complete a proof of concept project with MACA at the Karlawinda gold mine in Western Australia has been extremely rewarding for all involved. Position Partners are experts at retrofitting advanced solutions to all makes and models of heavy machinery. We are excited about this next phase of our partnership, scaling MACA’s autonomous fleet to 100 trucks.”
“In our proof of concept trial, we saw how autonomous heavy equipment can transform mine site safety and productivity. Now, we’re ready to go all in with a much larger deployment. Together, SafeAI and MACA will bring AI-powered autonomy to a fleet of 100 trucks, unlocking the benefits of autonomous technology at scale and pioneering a safer and more productive approach to mining.”
"We needed an autonomous solution that was versatile enough to apply to our mixed fleet, and scalable enough to grow with us and SafeAI offered both. With its AI-powered, retrofit technology, we can bring autonomy to mine sites that have not yet been able to benefit from this transformative technology."
“This technology is a game changer for our business, our customers and our industry. SafeAI’s versatile, scalable solution is unmatched in our industry right now, and has profound implications for site safety, efficiency and cost-effectiveness. We expect to see quick takeup from our customers as they begin to see the tremendous impact of this technology.”
