By your description all of the defensive systems in the opening sequences of the movie Raiders of the Lost Ark fit within the automated weapon category. If you can make the case for land mines why not those systems?

Simple purely reactive systems (even the Iron Dome system or Phalanx system) are not addressing the primary issue. The issue is cognition and what level of cognition "crosses the line"?

When does a single purpose system that has zero level of "choice" versus one that can actively sense its environment and choose which inputs to ignore, which inputs to evaluate, which responses to make from those evaluations, and finally decide what are the allowable limits of response cross the line? It's the last two of those cognition steps that cause heartburn in most people in the field.
