Paper Abstract

Landmine detection is a complex and highly dangerous task. Most demining operations are done using hand-held detectors, which means that the operator is always at risk of serious injury or death. One of the most important factor that determines the probability of detecting is the operator performance. Therefore, it is very important that we train the operator well and are able to assess their performance accurately. To achieve these objectives, we have been developing two training tools, the 3D tracker for real-time feedback during training, and the virtual mien lane for interactive training. We have been using the 3D tracker successfully to assess the performance of an operator as a prat of a successful training program.
