Abstract
The Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology (ECET) Honors student developed a prototype for an inexpensive unexploded ordinance (UXO) seeking robot. The system provided functionality including: locating metallic landmines and UXO within a defined area/environment, recording the location of said landmines and UXO's, and storing the data off unit via an IEEE 802.11b/g connection to a Windows or Linux-based laptop computer. Application of the prototype and corresponding research may lend themselves to de-mining the more than 100 landmine/unexploded ordinance affected countries in the world particularly in desert terrain (US Department of State Fact Sheet, 2 July 2003).
