Resumo: (EN) The development of mining technologies has grown significantly in recent years. For mining companies, the adoption of new technologies on automation and remote operation represents a significant opportunity for gains in productivity and safety. This paper describes the development of an integrated solution for autonomous explosive loading applied to mining processes. This method can reduce or eliminate the risks to which operators are exposed in environments such as rock blast areas. The proposed solution was validated with simulated and real tests. Tests were carried out in a laboratory, using a mobile platform with a robotic arm.
