Putnam, Craig B.
The goal of this project is to create an adaptable landmine detection platform to allow for autonomous marking and detonation of PMN-1 anti-personnel landmines without the need of endangering personnel and to make this landmine disposal operation economically feasible for poor regions of the world. This project is intended to be an adaptable prototype to be built upon by future teams. This project produced a prototype landmine detection and marking robot that utilized GPS localization, autonomous navigation and mapping, a prototype metal detection system and novel landmine marking system.
