Autonomous Underwater Explorer for Flooded Mines

The goal of the UNEXMIN is to develop a novel robotic system for the autonomous exploration and mapping of Europe’s flooded mines. The Robotic Explorer (UX-1) will use non-invasive methods for autonomous 3D mine mapping, gathering valuable geological and mineralogical information. This will open new exploration scenarios so that strategic decisions on the re-opening of Europe’s abandoned mines could be supported by up-to-date data that cannot be obtained in any other way. The multi-robot platform will represent a new technology line that is made possible by recent developments in autonomy research. The goal is to develop a completely new class of mine explorer service robots, capable of operating without remote control. Such robots do not exist nowadays and the UX-1 will be the first of its kind.
