Blob Detection

Blob detection is a strange sub-firld of augmented reality and of machine vision in which the purpose of visual processing of a physical space is to ascertain where the blobs are ? areas of high brightness, and areas of low brightness. It is often used to create a general outline that is quick and dirty, and can be used to get a general outline of the surrounding area so as to choose which more advanced imaging systems to call upon.

SWORDS - Special Weapons Observation Reconnaissance Detection Systems - & Robotic Warfare
Whenever you ask someone about robots being used to kill people, they almost without fail, think of the Terminator movies. Those few that don't, usually think of Star Wars droids, or other humanoid killing machines. Currently, we barely have two legged robots that can handle office buildings or race tracks, so these fantasies are still just fantasies. Robots deployed in war, to kill the enemy, that, is not a fantasy, and more are being produced every year.
