Typically, a human agent or a robotic device may sweep a suspected minefield in a systematic up and down pattern to search for explosive mines with the help of an appropriate sensor or sensor system, such as an EMI (Electromagnetic Induction) sensor. In this paper we consider alternative search patterns which take advantage of a priori knowledge of the minefield. In previous work, a gradient based search algorithm has been designed and shown to be an effective search strategy using simulations… CONTINUE READING
