In this video, South African Hauler manufacturer Bell Equipment tests the use of an X-box controller as the company begins development of automation systems for its haulers.

Shown at work in this clip is the Bell 45 hauler at the company’s testing facility in South Africa.

The controller also features a dead man switch for extra safety as the operator demonstrates the capabilities of the software.
