The UNEXMIN kick-off meeting took place in Miskolc, Hungary on the 18th and 19th of February 2016.
Thirteen organisations from seven countries across Europe are collaborating in an ambitious project to develop a submersible robotic system to be used for surveying and exploring flooded mines.
The €5M project, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research programme, will include the development of a Robotic Explorer (UX-1) for autonomous 3D mine-mapping to gather valuable geological information which cannot be obtained in any other way – in general the mines are too deep and dangerous for access by human divers.
Balazs and Tamas represented the LPRC team at the event.
