AbstractThis paper describes the software of a terrain scanning robot capable of autonomously manipulating a typical handheld detector for remote sensing of buried landmines in a manner similar to a human operator. The autonomous manipulation of the detector on unknown terrain requires an online terrain map to generate an obstacle free path for the end effector of the robot. The software includes a twofold process of map building and path planning that is implemented into a real-time software platform to take place in parallel to the other functions of the robot.
