A Critique Study on Autonomous Wireless Warfield Explosives Detection System
More than 68 counties around the world contain millions of land mines hidden beneath its ground waiting to be
triggered. So there is urgent need of a system which is capable of finding and diffusing landmines. 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 incorporates in it the literature surveys followed by a robot prototype which is
capable of detecting the land mines beneath the soil and applying counter-measures for tracking its location, while enabling
the operator to control the robot wirelessly from a distance. This technology interfaces with the metal detector circuit in a
robot with the array of sensors to search the landmines. The purpose of this paper is to propose a system for landmine
detection by using the autonomous robots which are capable of exploring and detecting buried landmines and marking their
locations. The main focus we put in this paper is to make a low cost and highly efficient system for the explosives detection.
