GAVLAB – Autonomous mapping with an RMP 400

The GPS and Vehicle Dynamics Laboratory at Auburn University (GAVLAB) and the Army Corp of Engineers Huntsville Center developed an RMP 400 based mobile robot system capable of autonomously mapping a given field for the purpose of finding unexploded ordnance (UXO). A combination of GPS and INS are used for navigation, while the trailer carries two Geonics EM61-Mk2 metal detectors. The video below shows the robot in action at a range in the Great Salt Plains area of Oklahoma.
