For several centuries there has been a widespread concern for the safety of soldiers who serve the nation and civilians too. Each and every year the number of soldiers we are losing because of these venturesome land mines is exceptionally high, which still need to be taken care of. Even though there are many technological developments in mine detection by application of robots, properly established methods for demining of landmines haven’t come up. In order to save the lives of soldiers by effective detection and elimination of the land mines, we are introducing jamming technology in robots. This technology makes use of coffee granules upon application of Positive pressure. This technology along with bio-mimicry of a human arm is an enhancement. We describe the mechanical design and implementation of this gripper and quantify its performance in the robot designed by us termed as i-AMT (All terrain Mine Terminator). We have made use of the infrared sensor, ultrasound sensor which increases the ability and consummate this robot’s effectiveness in detection along with jamming technology helps in potential termination of the land mines and thus help in saving the soldiers life.
