A Haptics Probe for Detecting Landmines

Project Mission | Project Status


The Cybernet goal is to automate the human-based technique of landmine searching

PROJECT MISSION

Cybernet automated the manual search technique for landmines using robotics and haptics. There are many situations where manual clearing is the most reliable method for demining; however, this technique puts the human very close to the explosive. Our goal in this project was to automate the human-based technique of inserting a probe (often a sharp bayonet) into the earth and carefully probing for mines in the soil.

PROJECT STATUS

Completed for U.S. Army.


Robotics and haptics can be used to make landmine removal safer
