Abstract: This project demonstrates the problem and effects of landmines in defence fields. We are proposing a robot that has the aptitude to detect the buried mines and lets user to control it wirelessly to avoid human causalities. The main objective of the project is on the safety of humans by well equipped and designed robot with special range sensors that help in avoiding obstacles in the field by specifically detecting the position of obstacles. For the fabricating the project, a special type of prototype made of lightweight temperature resistant metal is used to carry all the objects. A Global Positioning System (GPS) sensor is added to the robot which identifies and broadcasts the present location of the robot. Microcontroller commands the robot. This technique has the practical benefit of reducing the number of causalities. After the implementation of the techniques, the robot can be controlled efficiently and it robustly determines the position of the obstacles. Here, we can use the Arduino microcontroller as the brain of the robot. The robot system is embedded with metal detector capable of sensing the landmine and buzzer from producing a warning alarm to the nearby personnel in that area. The locomotion of the robot is carried out by the DC motor. The robot is interfaced with the pc with help of a ZigBee device. Thus, user can identify the position of the landmines which is designed using the proteus 8 software and the programming is done using Arduino software
