Intelligent positioning solutions provider, Position Partners, has announced an agreement with MACA, a leading diversified contracting group, to automate a mixed fleet of 100 mining trucks.

Together with SafeAI, a provider of AI and automation for heavy equipment, the companies will create one of the largest autonomous heavy equipment fleets in Australia, with the aim of producing safer, more productive and more cost-effective mine sites.

“Position Partners has worked with MACA over several years to deploy and support a range of technology solutions, from high precision systems to fleet management,” said Martin Nix, Position Partners CEO.

“Following a successful proof of concept project with SafeAI’s leading retrofit autonomy solution in Karlawinda, WA, this agreement represents a significant next step in our partnership that will see us scale up MACA’s autonomy fleet over the coming years.”

“This technology is a game changer for our business, our customers and our industry,” said Shane Clark, MACA’s General Manager of Estimating and Technical Services. “We expect to see quick take up from our customers as they begin to see the tremendous impact of this technology.”
