Liebherr Collaborates on Production of Autonomous-Ready Haul Trucks


Liebherr Mining Equipment and Autonomous Solutions Inc. (ASI) announced that Liebherr’s new autonomous-ready haul trucks will be compatible with ASI’s autonomous command and control platform Mobius.

Liebherr’s vision of an autonomous haul truck includes an open interface that enables the truck to integrate to ASI’s Mobius platform. Liebherr’s autonomous vehicles can be controlled under an OEM agnostic command system for autonomous vehicles, providing maximum flexibility for their customers.

“By adopting the Mobius platform, Liebherr is poised to differentiate its autonomous vehicles by addressing the market need for interoperability and openness,” explained ASI’s Drew Larsen, director of business development over Mining. “I believe the market will welcome Liebherr’s decision.”

Liebherr has integrated with the Mobius protocols for its vehicle control interface, rather than establishing a proprietary command and control platform on its own. This move to an open platform will provide much needed flexibility to their customers when integrating different autonomous vehicle types throughout a mine site.

ASI is a world leader in vehicle automation. Its Mobius platform provides an OEM-agnostic, interoperable command and control software solution for autonomous vehicles. Mobius enables mine operations to integrate a variety of mining based vehicles under a comprehensive platform.

ASI’s robotic hardware and software systems allow users to safely manage their entire fleet of vehicles autonomously. The company serves clients in the mining, agriculture, automotive, government and manufacturing industries with remote control, teleoperation and fully automated solutions from its headquarters and 100-acre proving ground in northern Utah. 

ASI’s vehicle automation products can be found in companies and government agencies throughout the world, including Anglo American, Rio Tinto, Ford Motor Co., Case New Holland, Luke Air Force Base, General Dynamics, Sharp Electronics and others.
