This paper describes the development and implementation of a low cost camera system that uses polarisation features of visible light for faster area reduction. The camera system will be mounted on a mechanical minefield area reduction asset, namely an AT mine roller of The HALO Trust. The automatic detection system will give an audible alarm in order to stop the AT mine roller before the rollers detonate a mine.
