Abstract [en]

Automation in mining industry is one of the important research and application areas of artificial intelligence. Also it is one of the key areas that autonomous vehicle technology being built upon. In order to accomplish autonomous driving, researchers get help from many different areas such as computer science, mechanical engineering, mathematics, and even psychology, and many more areas. With the current speed of technological development, in the near future, it will be inevitable that autonomous driving will be reality in many areas including mining areas, public and private transportation. It is obvious that autonomous vehicles will be major type of transportation when benefits of autonomous vehicles realized by the public. In this work, a lighting system for autonomous mining vehicle that has never been truly and intensively studied was developed. In this study, a state-of-the-art lighting system was designed and tested for realization of autonomous mining vehicle. Not only lighting system but also cleaning system for the surfaces of headlamps, sensors, and cameras has been developed and two patent application has been made. Also human vehicle interaction was studied.

Abstract [sv]

Automation i gruvindustrin är ett av de viktigaste forsknings- och tillämpningsområdena för artificiell intelligens. Det är också ett av nyckelområdena för autonom fordonsteknik. För att åstadkomma autonom körning, behöver forskare ta hjälp från många olika områden såsom t.ex. datavetenskap, maskinteknik, matematik men även psykologi. Med den nuvarande teknikutvecklingshastigheten så kommer det inom en snar framtid vara fullt möjligt för autonom körning att bli verklighet inom områden såsom t.ex. gruvnäringen samt offentliga och privata transporter. Det är uppenbart att förflyttning med autonoma fordon kommer vara en viktig typ av transport när fördelarna med autonoma fordon går upp för allmänheten. Detta arbete fokuserar på ett belysningssystem för ett autonomt gruvfordon, ett område som inte tidigare blivit särskilt ordentligt studerat. I denna studie har ett modernt belysningssystem utformats och testats för användande i autonoma gruvfordon. Studien täcker inte bara belysningssystemet utan även rengöringssystem för belysningsenheter, sensorer och kameror. Två patentansökningar har lämnats in. Även samspelet mellan människa och fordon har studerats.
