In the image here, the blue dot is the good guy, like a security guard and the red dot is the bad guy, like an intruder. The researchers have created an algorithm that allows the blue dot to intercept the red dot by using a path that is sneaky and not direct.
The algorithm takes into account robot size, size of objects it can hide behind and speed of the intruder.
Wow, they are creating a robot that can hide on us.
Now that really is creepy!
