  • Scaled-down dozer and load haul dump (LHD) machines for performing experiments.
  • Optimal control of dozer for maximizing productivity.
  • LHD control strategies for maximizing mucking efficiency.
  • Sensor-based automated driving.
  • Laser scanning for mapping environments.
  • Task planning for higher productivity.
