Autonomous, electric, connected. This is Tara: a complete autonomous haulage system designed for use in confined areas such as quarries and mines. Developed entirely in-house, Tara can be tailored to meet your hauling needs, helping you reduce harmful emissions while increasing productivity and safety.
Our goal is not to simply offer you a machine. We want to offer you the most efficient transport system that delivers the greatest value for your business. Based on our Autonomous Transport Solution (ATS) concept, Tara includes the fully automated Volvo TA15 electric dumper, our in-house developed virtual driver, support with all necessary site infrastructure and more – everything you need for a seamless switch to automation. Tara is offered as Transport as a Service (TaaS). This means you only pay for the services you use, allowing you to free up capital expenditure.
This is the Tara system:
Ideal for use in confined areas, the Volvo TA15 is a fully automated electric dumper. With Tara, you can downsize and replace larger, diesel-powered vehicles with a fleet of Volvo TA15s to cut emissions, increase efficiency and optimize machine utilization.

The entire Tara solution is developed in-house. This includes the virtual driver which is based on industry-leading hardware and software. Our in-house developed driver was designed specifically for use in the quarrying and mining industries. It perceives the world around it to execute the planned mission in the safest possible way.
The right solution needs the right infrastructure. We support you every step of the way to integrate and enable all site infrastructure – from charging stations and safety systems to the operator interface and anything else you need to integrate our transport system into your operations.
We understand the importance of uptime to your business. To ensure that your machines keep moving, we offer a customized, full-service solution that fits to your needs.
The hauling operations of an autonomous fleet are built on a continued repetitive flow with no need for refuelling or manual charging. With Tara, this continuous flow is integrated into your specific operation, so it can run safely and efficiently – 24/7.
When it comes to autonomous solutions, control is everything – especially if they are running around the clock. Our control room allows you to continually monitor and optimize your performance in real time – ensuring efficiency, productivity and safety.
The financial solution offered is linked to the actual usage of the assets instead of purchase and maintenance costs. Simply put, you only pay for the services you use.
From increased safety and reduced emissions to higher productivity, the Tara transport system is uniquely designed to let you experience all the benefits of automation, electrification and connectivity on a human-supervised site. Here are just some of the ways TARA can benefit your business:
