Wireless network developer Rajant and Komatsu have achieved Rajant certification for the OEM’s FrontRunner Autonomous Haulage Solution (AHS).
The companies said validation for FrontRunner AHS was completed in just six months.
“Reliable communications networks that offer continuous mobile connectivity are crucial to successful autonomous haulage operations,” said David Haukeness, Komatsu product manager for autonomous systems. “Rajant’s low-latency Kinetic Mesh and support for LTE and WiFi make their network a key part of our efforts to help our customers achieve their autonomous goals.”
Komatsu’s FrontRunner AHS uses onboard technology and requires continuous, reliable wireless communication with the central office. Rajant Kinetic Mesh machine-to-machine (M2M) InstaMesh technology provides autonomous solutions like FrontRunner AHS with higher reliability and network resiliency with low latency.
Rajant is co-deployed on Komatsu mining equipment already at more than 100 mines globally; it is now fully prepared to support Komatsu’s autonomous solutions.
“Achieving Rajant certification with Komatsu reflects the work of many individuals and addresses a key request from our mutual customers to continue utilizing both companies’ advanced solutions,” said Vice President of Sales – Americas Sagar Chandra.
