Science has already advanced past this. It's just asking for a recognition system whereas the computer would be able to identify or navigate, in this
case, by simple observation be it with circuits, or general navigation.
In one of the last few threads in this forum, coincidentally, I posted a comment about our latest drones here in the US now being able to fly without
a satellite in space above giving them coordinates. They just see their surroundings and "know" where they are.

Also see TechWolf's comments on the next page about Inertial Navigation Systems, as well. Similar.
can be applied to anything dealing with robotics/drones, or even in terms of repair systems - intelligent computer being able to
scan and identify parts on the ground (as another example), whereupon it would then be able to guess as to how they all should be put together, etc.
Alternatively, another example could be a system that identifies a combat situation such as, "Okay, I see 2 tanks, 1 copter, and a sniper. I am
located here, the objective is there. The terrain is like this. I only have these assets to work with, myself. How do I counter? What are my options?"
(a complex scenario) Although, this would go into a different realms of programming including tactics, instead of just navigation such as your shared
article was specifically centered around.
There are even more ways this can be used, but leaving it at that, that is the gist of how it works to the person viewing it.
