In the “ACME Pinnacle Laboratory”, the Gondwanan Mining Agency (GMA) is currently examining the logistics of collecting and depositing the mined ore and waste. A concept for a new autonomous system to collect, sort and deliver the ore and waste is being investigated. The “run of mine” material is typically stored near the mine site in bins and must be delivered to waste and ore receival bins nearby. The GMA is struggling with the development of a system to efficiently and reliably collect and deliver the ore and waste in a timely manner. The challenge is to design, build and prove a “proof of concept” collection and delivery system in a laboratory environment that simulates conditions on the Gondwana mine site.
