Through the application of the Operator Assist System, mine sites will benefit from reduced operator burden, improved mine site safety, increased productivity and reduced fuel consumption. The conducting of testing on a site operated by the mining giant will demonstrate the practical application of the Operator Assist System and will help to improve the accuracy of the system going forward.'
