Abstract:
Abstract There are many countries affected by landmines which present a major threat to lives and cause economic problems. Landmines are harmful because of their unknown positions and often difficult to detect. The development of new demining technologies is difficult because of the tremendous diversity of terrains and environmental conditions in which mines are laid and also because of the wide variety of landmines. Currently, detecting and clearing mines demand specific expertise with special equipment. This paper presents different techniques used for landmines detection. It discusses the strategies that can enable the robot to detect mines by means of sensors. This paper deals also with the processing of the fused information from different sensors to guide soldiers when passing landmines. The purpose is to give an overview of the landmines detection techniques by using the autonomous robots which are capable of exploring and detecting buried landmines and marking their locations. Keywords: Landmine detection, Autonomous robot, Explosive vapor detection, Multi-sensor devices, Sensor fusion.
