autonomous Underwater EXplorer for flooded MINes

Horizon 2020 project

Total budget: €4,862,865

Duration: 2016-2019

Point of contact: Giorgia Stasi


UNEXMIN developed a novel robotic system, primarily for the autonomous exploration and mapping of Europe’s flooded mines, but also with other applications in mind. The Robotic Explorer platform, made by three robots – UX-1a, UX-1b and UX-1c, uses non-invasive methods for autonomous 3D mine mapping for gathering valuable geological, mineralogical and spatial information.
