Using Deep Learning, Researchers Automate UAV-Based Land Mine Detection

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
BINGHAMTON, N.Y., May 29, 2020 — Researchers at Binghamton University, who previously developed a method for detecting “butterfly” land mines using low-cost, commercial drones equipped with multispectral and infrared cameras, are now focusing on automated detection of land mines using convolutional neural networks. Nicknamed “butterfly” land mines for their small size and butterfly-like shape, PFM-1 land mines are extremely difficult to locate and clear due to their small size, low trigger mass, and a design that mostly excludes metal components, making them virtually invisible to metal...Read full article
