A Haptics Probe for Mine Detection
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Cybernet proposes to automate certain aspects of 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 unfortunately puts thehuman very close to the explosive. Our goal in this project is 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. Rather than placing a human mere inches from theexplosive, we will teleoperate the probe, relaying the
