Abstract: The use of autonomous robots for humanitarian demining tasks is a promising solution. Among the different types of autonomous robots, walking robots exhibit significant advantages to negotiate uneven and unstructured terrain. However, the complete autonomous control of walking robots is still challenging. In this work, a hybrid reactive/deliberative control architecture is proposed for the autonomous control of a demining system composed of a hexapod walking robot and a scanning manipulator. This control architecture allows the control system to both plan global control and navigation strategies and react to unmodelled disturbances.
