This paper presents a new method for recognizing white line markings for navigation of an autonomous vehicle that operates in out-door environments. A fuzzy-reasoning-based general technique for edge detection is used to classify a pixel in an image into a border region or a uniform region based on luminance differences between this pixel and its neighboring pixels. The idea of this paper is to integrate special knowledge about white line markings into a fuzzy rule base using this general technique. The method is implemented on the THMR-III mobile robot, and experiments show that this method is robust to noise and environment changes.

And this is not a bad thing. Not all conspiracies are bad; especially when it come to protecting secrets from the prying eyes who scan google earth. Google conspires with us to conceal certain sites, so it should come as no surprise that other nations (even Asian ones) also enter into such conspiracies with google to have their sites concealed from our prying eyes - Using older or lower quality images to do this is a less conspicuous manner to hide things

Nice work on that and I must say I was more floating the idea mate rather than saying this is how it is
Working where I work I only see un-classified but in saying so I do see how much money is spent on the mentioned.
Seeing no-one reads this thread I can tell you that Orbital Space Based weapons are made in Adelaide OZ.
