Control of mobile robots for humanitarian demining

Abstract

This project is concerned with a problem of humanitarian demining. One of successful demining techniques is based on the usage of mobile robots for detecting and clearing anti-personnel land mines (APM). LARICS people have got a task from DOK-ING d.o.o. to make expertise of the DOK-ING remote control system for all terrain vehicles equipped with flailing mechanisms intended for APM neutralization and destruction.

Project results:

We have made an expert assessment of the DOK-ING remote control system that has resulted in our proposals for further improvement of the existing system as well as in the proposals for a new concept of the remote control system based on advanced control, measurement and communication technologies. We would be glad if we could be a part of the future research and development activities in this extremely interesting and inspiring technical field.
