Recently, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signing ceremony for Thailand’s first 5G + Smart Autonomous Vehicles Solution for Sustainable Industrial Advancement Project was held in Bangkok, Thailand. Mr. Roongrote Rangsiyopash, President of Siam Cement Group (SCG), Mr. Somchai Lertsutiwong, CEO of Thailand Advanced Info Services Public Co., Ltd. (AIS), Mr. Han Liao, President of Carrier Business Group, Huawei Technologies (Thailand) Co., Ltd., Professor Long Chen, CEO of Qingdao WAYTOUS Smart Machine Co., Ltd., and Mr. Zhiqiang Yu, CEO of Zhengzhou Yutong Mining Equipment Co., Ltd. jointly signed the Memorandum of Understanding, and joined hands to open a new chapter in the construction of green and smart mines. Professor Biao Jiang, IEAS Academician and director of Chinese Academy of Sciences Innovation Cooperation Center (CAS-ICC Bangkok), was invited to attend the ceremony and witness the signing of the contract.
Thailand’s first Smart Autonomous Vehicles Solution for Sustainable Industrial Advancement Project is located in the SCG Salaburi mining area with a total investment of USD10 million. Relying on the comprehensive application of cutting-edge technologies, such as 5G, artificial intelligence, autopilot, cloud computing, and new energy power batteries, this mining area will be built into a new type of green, smart, efficient and safe mine. It will become a leading model of mines in Thailand, and even in ASEAN region. Relying on a self-developed “YUGONG” Intelligent Mining Operating System, WAYTOUS will provide technical services for this project by expanding technologies of autonomous driving, smart dispatching, and smart cooperative operation to new energy mining trucks, and create the first overseas project in the field of autonomous driving in China’s mining industry.
WAYTOUS, together with both Chinese and Thai partners, will build the first intelligent mining in Thailand and ASEAN region, which will certainly become a model of regional cooperation between China and Thailand in the fields of 5G, artificial intelligence, autonomous driving, and new energy under the new cooperation mode of the Asian-Pacific region.
Under the background of the strengthening comprehensive strategic partnership between Thailand and China for mutual trust and win-win cooperation, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), a representative of China’s scientific and technological force, established CAS-ICC Bangkok in 2017. The goal is to introduce China’s high-tech innovation achievements into Thailand, which provides strong support for Thailand’s economic development and scientific and technological personnel training. WAYTOUS is a “national team” high-tech enterprise in the field of artificial intelligence and smart control incubated by the Institute of Automation of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Throughout this cooperation, WAYTOUS will create a successful case of Sino-Thai cooperation in the field of artificial intelligence, further promote China’s scientific and technological innovation, and help to expand cooperation through science, technology, and innovation between China, Thailand and other ASEAN countries.
In China, WAYTOUS, a leading unmanned mining technology and service provider, has worked actively with Huawei and Yutong for many years to create the strongest cooperative ecology in the field of sustainable smart mining in China. WAYTOUS formulated a strategic objective of overseas development in 2021, and foreign clients who are interested in in-depth cooperation are very significant for WAYTOUS to build a successful overseas model. Over the past year and a half, the five parties of China and Thailand have overcome all difficulties and worked together, and the professionalism and patience of the partners have made WAYTOUS cherish the opportunity to work with all parties to build a green wisdom mine. The signing marks the formation of the ecological capacity of the five parties to cooperate. Through further cooperation, WAYTOUS will work with partners to develop relevant standards for green smart mines, precipitate superior patents, explore advanced models, and inject sustainable and smart future genes into the mining development of Thailand and even ASEAN region.
By maximizing respective advantages, WAYTOUS and their strategic ecological partners provide integrative solutions for unmanned and smart mines ensuring quality, sustainability, and intelligence. In recent years, WAYTOUS, Huawei, and Yutong have closely cooperated. The solutions have implemented several unmanned and intelligent mines of large enterprises. So far, WAYTOUS has started the second phase of Yangquan Jidong Cement 5G+ smart mining project with GTC Jidong Cement and Yutong. This project has authentic unmanned and 24/7 operation for the whole mine with autonomous driving vehicles. It is becoming the first fully unmanned project in China, symbolizing a benchmark and a reference case for the intelligence and sustainable development of cement mines.Source: Yahoo Finance
