Smart Wireless Autonomous Robot for Landmine Detection with Wireless Camera

Authors(2) :-Monica M, Kiran S. Patil

The tremendous recent involvement of technology in our life generates a lot of advantages and disadvantages. Nevertheless, and in order to highly augment its positive influence, at the expense of the negatives, technology most be deployed to serve humanity and society. With this objective, we highlight the importance of involving robotics, communication and data analysis in the domain of land mine detection. The main idea is to design and implement a prototype of an efficient low cost automated robot that has the aptitude to detect the buried mines and lets user control it wirelessly to avoid human causalities. This detector will wirelessly communicate with a server to transmit the detected information. The proposed system will help in significantly reducing the risk poses to the human detectors lives while they are in a field of mines.
