Mine traffic optimization

The project aims at optimizing traffic in open pit mines, and is a collaborative endeavour between University of Toronto, Queen’s University, and Barrick Gold Corporation. Two topics that are of particular interest to the University of Toronto team include the interactions between the haul truck operator and the partially automated dispatch system, as well as haul truck operator fatigue and distraction.Project in conjunction with Profs. Greg Jamieson (University of Toronto), Laeeque Daneshmend (Queen’s University), Josh Marshall (Queen’s University).

Sponsor(s): Barrick Gold, MITACS (Accelerate Internship Cluster)
