Landmine detection is a immense technological problem. A small low power metal detector would find application in concert with other search technologies. A detection circuit was designed and constructed consisting of a search coil and a CMOS exclusive OR gate forming an oscillator. This was interfaced to a microprocessor which counted the pulses from the oscillator and decided whether a detection had been made. Detection range for an anti-personnel mine like object was 14 cm at the coil centerline. A robot platform to autonomously search for landmines was constructed.
