World's First Train Without a Mechanic Starts Expeditions: China-based mining company Rio Tinto started to use the world's first full-fledged autonomous train. The company is expected to enter a different sector with this activity outside the mining sector. A historic step has been taken with the train transferring loads on the 100 kilometer road without any people in any of the wagons.
One of the most established professions in the history of transportation, mechanics is history. After autonomous cars, the line came to the trains, which were the sole rulers of the railway. The world's largest train journey in Western Australia, the first train service without machinists took place.

Rio Tinto's first expedition for iron ores in Pilbara, Western Australia, was the first step of the company. In fact, autonomous trains have been used since the beginning of 2017, but in any case the machinists were in charge.
Rio Tinto wants to have a fully autonomous train fleet by 2018. However, first of all Australia will have to get approval from its legal authorities.
