This paper describes current progress in a project to develop a robot for locating underground chemical sources. There are important economic, environmental and humanitarian applications for systems that can find the source of an odor or volatile chemical located beneath the ground. These applications cover the spectrum from harvesting truffles, to finding the location of leaking gas pipes and land mines. In previous work the feasibility of detecting vapor percolating through the ground was… CONTINUE READING
