Cohda Wireless to Deploy V2X-Locate at Rio Tinto's Oyu Tolgoi Mine
Cohda Wireless, an Australian technology transport system company, will deploy its V2X-Locate vehicle positioning solution to the Rio Tinto-run Oyu Tolgoi mine in Mongolia to increase productivity and push for new industry standards.
The company claimed that the vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technology connects vehicles and roadside infrastructure to create a cooperative and intelligent cooperative transport environment,
The system, it continued, will provide "unheralded vehicle and personnel location accuracy." Cohda Wireless initially developed the technology to solve the challenges of vehicle positioning in cities where large buildings, underground car parks and tunnels interfere with GNSS signals.
At Oyu Tolgoi, the technology will connect over 200 mining vehicles of all types via specially adapted On-Board units. Approximately 2,000 personnel will use V2X-Locate compatible cap lamps so that the collective system can use Time-of-Flight analysis of wireless signals to resolve spatial locations.
