Increasing Efficiency, Consistency and Safety through Autonomous Dozing

Arch Coal is improving the consistency of its dozing operations at Black Thunder mine in the western United States with the implementation of Cat® MineStar™ Command for dozing. The semi-autonomous system allows one operator to control up to three machines at one time from a remote location. In addition to working more efficiently, operators also experiences less physical fatigue thanks to their location in a comfortable office environment.
