The UNEXMiN project is developing a technology capable of autonomous exploration and mapping of flooded mines. The robotic platform uses non-contact methods to gather geological, mineralogical and spatial data without major costs or risks associated. The field trials help the team to access the platform development and make improvements to the unique technology.
UNEXMiN has finished its third trial, at the Urgeiriça mine, Portugal, where it tested two robots to explore and map the galleries and tunnels of the flooded underground mine. Robots UX-1a and UX-1b were tested at different times with positive results.
