Abstract or project description
Active landmines that are left as remnants of wars, have been plaguing countries for decades. Annually, 5,000 people die per year at the hand of landmines and 30,000 Afghanis have been killed by landmines since 1978, with children being a vast majority of the victims. The current methods of solving this problem use expensive, ground-penetrating-radar equipped vehicles that are not designed for civilian use. With the use of a cost effective, civilian operated, landmine solution such as mine, people can clear out plots of land for landmines with the assurance that no destruction will occur. Through the use of computer vision, my drone will be able to maximize the success rate of detection with a identifying algorithm using the camera and field-of -view.
