We rely on vehicles for so many things that it becomes easy to forget how complex and intricate that kind of machinery can be. When it comes to security, being able to dig into the nitty-gritty details of a system is often required, and that can be somewhat difficult with something as complex as cars and trucks. There’s one area that’s easy to overlook, too, which is the undercarriage of vehicles. Such an area could be taken advantage of, since it sometimes doesn’t get checked by security personnel and could have dangerous modifications or be used to smuggle in contraband. Below, we take a look at why a vehicle undercarriage scanner is so necessary for modern day security and what three of the biggest benefits of such a system are.
1. Detecting Threats
The main goal behind installing a vehicle undercarriage scanner is to detect any threats that may be present. The right kind of vehicle undercarriage scanner system is capable of immediate threat detection, meaning that it can automatically identify any potentially dangerous modifications or additions and alert security personnel who can then handle the situation. No longer do we have to rely on manual inspection to take place beneath every vehicle; instead, we can allow AI-driven systems to make quick work of the problem for us.
2. Fit for a Variety of Applications
Whether you need a temporary installation for an event that may be particularly vulnerable, or you’re trying to create better permanent security solutions for a government facility that handles sensitive data, there’s a vehicle undercarriage scanner system that can work for you. Take Gatekeeper’s IVUS as an example, which is available both in permanent and temporary installations and is fully automatic.
3. Reliable Functionality
Provided you opt for a high-quality vehicle undercarriage scanning system, you can expect it to perform when you need it to. All Gatekeeper units are available and function no matter what the environmental conditions are. This includes varying sunlight availability, during extreme weather conditions, and more.
