Abstract: The landmines are created for war purpose by burying explosive metals underneath the earth surface at the length of 15 cm. It can stay active for up to 50 years. They relay on the effect of explosive blast to damage the victim. Mostly, these could be Blast mines where the explosive material is buried. These explosive materials are made up of metal or other materials where explosive chemical component embedded in it. These landmines could be found with the help of inductive proximity sensors to detect metallic objects and ultrasonic sensors to detect the distance of the detected object from the vehicle. With the help of Bluetooth module which is implemented on the unmanned vehicle is used to search the minefields will transmit the information to its paired device. The vehicle is programmed using Arduino Uno (AT mega 328) to analyse and process the information. The device is programmed in such a way that as soon as it finds any objects it stops right there. Indicating the presence of metal object on that location. This detection is done with the help of creating Bluetooth nodes and then activating the sensors through Bluetooth transmitter (user’s device). Based on the target object ‘s electromagnetic radiation the presence of metal can be found. This is done to demine the unknown landmines across the world.
