The land mine crisis is globally alarming since there are presently 500 millions unexploded, buried mines in about 70 countries. Governments are looking into this situation seriously since land mines are claiming the limb sandlives of civilians every day. The purpose of this project is to design a robot which is capable of detecting buried land mines and marking their locations, while enabling the operator to control the robot wirelessly from a distance. The project was start from the brain storming phase together with the research phase and then preceded into the conceptualization or designing phase. The ideas and concepts from the theoretical stages are shaped into the physical hardware components by fabrication of a prototype and then software programs are integrated intothe system so as to tes tand experiment the concepts that had been developed.
