Do you want to be part of a new agile software team, The Automation Lab?
The industry is in a technological shift. Customers are showing a growing interest in automation and digitization solutions and Epiroc has high sustainability goals and a strong focus on improving the safety of employees in mining and infrastructure. In 2008, Epiroc launched the first autonomous machines and much has happened since then. Today, several of our machines can perform all or large parts of their tasks without people controlling them.

To continue the work with future mining, we will now set up a new team. The Automation Lab.

The new agile team, which will consist of a project manager and three software developers, will work closely with various universities, other companies and strategic customers.

We will focus on automation solutions on our machines. For examples; evaluating open source software or new sensor technologies to see if it works in the mining environment.
