Object detection is one of the most important sectors in digital forensics science. The object detection technique is valuable for a number of purposes for instance: medical diagnosis scanners, traffic monitoring system, airport security examination, law regulation firms, and for diverse local or international data rescue departments. The purpose of my paper is to deliver an object detection method to detect a weapon in a camera image by relating a detailed analysis of weapon detection techniques such as image enhancement, image segmentation, image feature extraction, and image classification. However, the applicable techniques are created through the computation of different mathematical and algorithms models.
