In this chapter, we introduce an environment-adaptive anti-personnel mine detection system called the advanced mine sweeper (AMS). The advanced mine sweeper is based on sensing technologies, access-control technologies and system integration technologies for safe and effective demining procedures after the Level II survey. advanced mine sweeper consists of a sensing vehicle/unit, an access vehicle, and an assist vehicle. The sensing vehicle/unit is composed of an integrated sensor and a small-reaction sensor head manipulator. The access vehicle is parked facing a minefield in order to control the sensing unit position in a global area using its boom. The assist vehicle is parked some distance from the minefield. It controls the sensing vehicle/unit and access vehicle and then displays the processed sensing information for landmine detection, receiving sensing information and sensing position. By using this system, experiments in the field with buried dummy landmines were carried out for utility and performance evaluation.
