研究成果: Chapter


In this chapter, an environment-adaptive antipersonnel mine detection system called Advanced Mine Sweeper is introduced. The Advanced Mine Sweeper is developed for safe and effective de-mining procedures after the Level II survey, based on sensing technologies, access-control technologies and system integration technologies. 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 (metal detector and ground penetrating radar) 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 a 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 evaluations.
