WPI’s Robotic Land Mine Destroyer

Super Cool Physics Toys

Landmines have killed and injured plenty of people over the years. Destroying them can be safer with robots. Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) researchers are working on a robot that can find and destroy mines. A rover with a metal detector is used to detect the mine while a drone drops a payload to detonate.

Thanks to this system, the robot finds and marks the mines without putting anyone in danger.
