Adani expects to run driverless trucks late next year

INDIAN energy giant Adani has ordered 55 "super large" dump trucks for late next year. It is unclear how many of the trucks will require drivers, given the company's desire to use automated machinery.

"All the vehicles will be capable of automation," said CEO Jeyakumar Janakara.

"When we ramp up the mine, everything will be autonomous from mine to port... in our eyes, this is the mine of the future."

In its early phase, Carmichael is projected to export 40 million tonnes of coal a year.
