Mobile Robotic Base

view

The Canadian robotics company has donated a mobile robotic base to the University to aid in their research on automated landmine removal. The donation was made through Clearpath’s grant program “Partnerbot,” part of Clearpath’s ongoing commitment to supporting university research teams. The team at Coimbra hopes to program the robot to analyze and navigate terrain, and to detect and disable buried mines. For its part, the donated base ‘bot is equipped with navigation sensors, ground penetrating radar and metal detecting arm. The hope is that the base, which Clearpath calls the Husky Unmanned Ground Vehicle, will one day be able to locate and localize landmines to spare human lives from being lost in either their purposeful or accidental discovery.
