In the present paper, the author want to highlight the construction and the possible implementation of a functional tracked mini-robot model within special humanitarian demining operations, a technological product developed within the Advanced Logistic Technologies Laboratory of our institution. The objectives and the hypotheses of the research, the methods and the instruments used in the process of the practical realization of the mechanical structure of the tracked mini robot as well as certain aspects related to its implementation and operation in humanitarian demining operations, a stage that was based on a study regarding the possible explosion by sympathy of a category of anti-tank mines, are presented in detail. We also mention the fact that the practical realization of the functional model of the “ETC Mines” mini robot represented the starting point for the filing at the State Office for Inventions and Trademarks, Bucharest, Romania, of the patent application no. a 2017 00562 representing the organological construction at a 1:1 scale of an innovative robotic technological product necessary for humanitarian demining missions.
