Energy Efficient Area Coverage for an Autonomous Demining Robot

  title={Energy Efficient Area Coverage for an Autonomous Demining Robot},
  author={Jos{\'e} Prado},
This work studies different coverage approaches with a mobile robot equipped with a landmine detecting sensor attached to an actuator arm. Different coverage techniques were experiment in this work and the cost benefit was analyzed in terms of energy consumption. The problem of optimising the combined motion of a mobile platform with an arm was addressed. The feasibility and effectiveness of both algorithms are demonstrated by simulation results for coverage work of target area.
