The Rio Tinto Centre for Mine Automation (RTCMA) is a collaborative research project in partnership with Rio Tinto spanning over a decade.

Our research brings together multiple highly technical academic disciplines of perception algorithms, sensing technologies, machine learning and data fusion, operations research, stochastic optimisation and control theory.

This technology transfer into Rio Tinto is supported by a team of software engineers working closely with academics within RTCMA.

Our work has resulted in a number of major research advancements, in both fundamental and applied areas as well as technologies that have transitioned into operating mines.
