The paper deals with design and modelling of four cost-effective crawling robots for land-mine localization in uneasy accessible areas covered by thick vegetation. As a universal solution to the land-mine problem is unlikely to be achieved in the short time, according to what many other researchers think, time is worth spent on trying to solve a specific aspect of the global problem, rather then treating the problem as a whole. Therefore, the reasons that leaded to recognize mine localization in areas covered by thick vegetation as important and urgent aspect of the global land-mine problem are explained. Then, what we mean with cost-effective robots is reported, within the establishment of simple criteria to evaluate the effective impact of proposed robots on the work of demining agencies on field. Finally, four cost-effective robots are presented.
