Abstract

Detection of Anti-Personnel Landmines is a challenging task for any sensor currently available. Using sensor fusion allows combining individual sensor results such that for each sensor its advantages remain while compensating for its disadvantages by using other sensor types. This paper provides an overview of sensor-fusion results obtained within the EU funded projects GEODE and LOTUS. These projects aim toward a vehicle mounted sensor suite consisting of Ground Penetrating Radar, Metal Detector, and Thermal Infra-Red.
