Summary

Image descriptionThe Belgian army has a long standing experience with humanitarian demining. Also the Unmanned Vehicle Centre is active in this field, by investigating ways to automate the tedious process of searching for land mines. Therefore, we develop robotic tools, which can scan a suspected minefield semi-autonomously when equipped with the right sensing material (in general: a metal detector and/or a ground penetrating radar).
