In this paper, we have applied a swarm intelligence based technique to a mine detection problem. Swarm intelligence techniques are used to model robotic agents to solve the problem. Studies made on the ant colonies, which is a typical member of the family of swarms, are applied in devising the techniques for the agents. Ant colony models bestow intelligence not only at the individual level, but more at the collective level (the interactions produced by the individual members in trying to solve a common problem). An analysis of the results obtained with a computer simulation of the mine detection is also presented.
