VIST Robotics successfully tested autonomous dump truck in Morocco

VIST Robotics (R&D subsidiary of VIST Group) conducted a successful test of robotized dump truck. The tests are performed in partnership with OCP Group at a specially equipped area near Casablanca to "run-in" innovative technologies developed by VIST Robotics. The Terex mining dump truck with fully autonomous control executed the route and also load-unload imitation.


Test of dump truck a significant step to create robotized mining complex to increase production safety and the efficiency. Full range tests to be terminated in the mid-spring. “In 2014, we got a contract in Morocco, beating our competitors from Canada, Japan and the U.S.,” said Dmitry Vladimirov, general director of VIST Group. “Since then, we’ve been working with OCP, Morocco’s national phosphate company, to implement remote control systems at five mining fields. They also suggested we set up a testing ground for our project.”
