Abstract : The purpose of this research work is to propose a simple bot to detect landmines and mark their locations using autonomous navigation using a simple Zumo32U4 robot. Landmine detection is an important and yet challenging aspect in many of the countries which are still plagued my landmine issues for several decades now. It is not only the problem of the military, but it is also a humanitarian concern. So, in order to address this issue we came up with simple, light weight, autonomous wireless controlled robot which is capable of detecting the landmine at the depth of 5cm to 9cm under group. The paper describes about the design and development of the landmine detection mechanism. The results are very promising that this bot can be well used in fields for identifying and locating the landmines.
