Short summary
The ROBOMINERS project develops an innovative technology for the future exploitation of small and difficult to access mineral deposits. A bioinspired robotic miner prototype, able to navigate, explore and mine under several work conditions, makes the exploration of many mineral deposits economically feasible, while reducing social and environmental impacts associated with conventional mining methods. A new mining system tailored to this new technology line is also under development.
