A System for Volumetric Robotic Mapping of Underground Mines
Description of two robotic systems for acquiring high-resolution volumetric maps of underground mines. Submitted to ICRA 2003.

A Case Study in Robotic Mapping of Abandoned Mines
This paper presents a mobile robot, dubbed Groundhog, capable of navigating through and acquiring maps of abandoned mines. Submitted to FSR 2003.

Case Studies of a Borehole Deployable Robot for Limestone Mine Profiling and Mapping
Explores the problems of abandoned limestone mines and how robotic technology provides a superior and economical perspective over current profiling techniques. Submitted to FSR 2003.
