Autonomous solutions specialists RCT will exhibit its latest technology at the biannual Austmine conference taking place in Brisbane from 21 - 23 May.

Central to RCT’s presence at the conference will be an example of the ControlMaster® Automation Centre which is currently deployed at various mining operations around the world.

RCT’s staff will help conference delegates test the Automation Centre and the associated purpose built simulator demonstrating the ControlMaster® Multiple Machine Control function at a surface mining operation.

The Automation Centre consists of a specially designed leather chair, high definition screens and a new navigation controller device which enables equipment operators to manage machines from a remote station on the mine’s surface.


Equipment operators can access G-Dash or real time, graphical machine data, feeds from multiple camera angles and point-to-point functions enabling faster remote tramming between production level locations on a mine site.

RCT East Coast Branch Manager Jack Gee said Austmine had traditionally proved to be an excellent opportunity to network with the key mining industry figures and he looked forward to a productive conference.


“Delegates will be able to test the Automation Centre and learn how the technology is able to bolster operator safety, lower operating costs and improve site productivity,” he said.

RCT will be exhibiting at stall 66 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from 21 - 23 May.
