  author={Ali Soofastaei and Saiied M. Aminossadati and Mehmet Kizil and Peter F. Knights},
Energy saving has become an important aspect of every business activity as it is important in terms of cost savings and greenhouse gas emission reduction. This study aims to develop a comprehensive artificial intelligence model for reducing energy consumption in the mining industry. Many parameters influence the fuel consumption of surface mining haul trucks. This includes, but not limited to, truck load, truck speed and total haul road resistance. In this study, a fitness function for the haul…
