The use of PMN-1 anti-personnel landmines, along with poor documentation and scale of their deployment, has led to a humanitarian crisis. Current methods of landmine removal, including military-grade equipment, trained animals, and manual deminers, are dangerous, ineffective, and expensive. This project built on the work of previous MQPs to develop a more robust rover for autonomous landmine detection and a more accurate drone for landmine detonation. Additionally, the team developed an easy-to-use application that combines the two systems and provides access to non-technical users.
