This paper presents the results of an experimental program for evaluating sensors and sensing technologies in an underground mining applications. The objective of the experiments is to infer what combinations of sensors will provide reliable navigation systems for autonomous vehicles operating in a harsh underground environment. Results from a wide range of(More)
This paper describes how many of the navigation techniques developed by the robotics research community over the last decade may be applied to a class of underground mining vehicles (LHDs and haul trucks). We review the current state-of-the-art in this area and conclude that there are essentially two basic methods of navigation applicable. We describe an(More)
This paper presents a demonstration of a process and software for evaluating the ability of an electronic product to operate with out failure under anticipated life cycle loading conditions. For this purpose, a preliminary design for an electronic module that is being developed to support aircraft engines was selected and evaluated. The process included(More)
