In this paper, we discuss the integration process of a mobile robot and multi-channel metal detector system intended for humanitarian demining applications within the EU FP7 TIRAMISU project. The paper describes how a standard tele-operated Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) robot was upgraded with electronics, sensors, computing power, motor control units and power sources, such that it becomes able to execute humanitarian demining tasks. To be able to detect land mines we have integrated with…

Teodor: A Semi-Autonomous Search and Rescue and Demining Robot
TLDR
A ground robotic system which is developed to deal with rough outdoor conditions and to be used as an environmental monitoring robot for 2 main application areas: humanitarian demining and search and rescue.
Instrumented Scanning Manipulator for Landmines Detection Tasks
TLDR
An instrumented robotic arm for landmines detection tasks during humanitarian demining activities and a mini-TOF camera for mapping the terrain that has to be scanned.
Unmanned Ground and Aerial Robots Supporting Mine Action Activities
TLDR
This chapter summarizes the technologies and experiences developed during 16 years through national and/or European‐funded projects, illustrated by some contributions of the authors' own laboratory, located at the Royal Military Academy of Brussels, focusing on the detection of unex‐ ploded devices and the implementation of mobile robotics systems on minefields.
CERNTAURO: A Modular Architecture for Robotic Inspection and Telemanipulation in Harsh and Semi-Structured Environments
TLDR
A novel robotic framework for autonomous inspections and supervised teleoperations in harsh environments is presented, able to navigate autonomously, inspecting unknown environments in a safe way and tested and validated with real robotic interventions in the CERN hazardous particle accelerator complex.
Development of Robotic Rovers: A Review
TLDR
The progress that has been made towards the development of robotic rover is reviewed, including the design, functions, specifications, and applications, to meet requirements in performing a variety of tasks including hazardous identification, site surveillance and monitoring.
A web-based solution for robotic telepresence
TLDR
A modular architecture is defined that provides a suitable solution for generic applications, and an instantiation of the architecture into a web-based solution for robotic telepresence is presented.

The TIRAMISU project aims at providing the foundation for a global toolbox that will cover the main mine action activities, from the survey of large areas to the actual disposal of explosive hazards,
Terrain Traversability Analysis for off-road robots using Time-Of-Flight 3D Sensing
TLDR
Traversability estimation is a challenging problem, as in a non-structured environment one should consider both the terrain characteristics and the robot mobility characteristics, i.e. locomotion method, wheels, etc.
