How Does Artificial Intelligence Play a Role in Transportation Security Technology?

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence has a huge impact on how we approach security.

Artificial intelligence has completely revamped the way we approach problem solving. You may not even be privy to the fact that AI has likely had an impact on how you shop or engage with media, but the reality is that different forms of AI are pervasive in modern society. One area that you may not realize has been shaped by AI is the world of security. Whether it’s cybersecurity or physical technologies, artificial intelligence has had a significant role to play in how we develop new security technologies.

What is Artificial Intelligence?

AI is any behavior that is apparently intelligent carried out by machines rather than the kinds of natural intelligence we see in animals. Forms of problem solving and even “learning” in a sense are often considered artificial intelligence. Examples of successful AI include machines that are able to understand human speech, drive cars, and even compete at a high level in strategy games like chess. While AI is often utilized in computer programming and is strongly associated with the tech industry, it’s a discipline rooted in mathematics, neuroscience, psychology, philosophy, and more.

Intelligent Image Analysis

The drawback of traditional audio and visual security is that it relies on a human component to monitor all of that information. This establishing a major risk, in that human error is prone to inevitably happen and there are significant chances it could have a significant impact on the safety of those the security system is meant to protect. Instead, artificial intelligence is able to do the heavy lifting for us and determine whether or not something poses a threat. Take for instance our Automatic Under Vehicle Inspection System, which is able to intelligently and accurately determine whether or not the undercarriage of a vehicle has been modified or poses any kind of security risk.

Changing How We Drive

There’s been a huge push in intelligent elements of road vehicles. This is prominent in automated cars, which use intelligence to determine whether there is another car in front of them or even a pedestrian. The hope is that these intelligent bits of tech will help open up roadways, alleviate traffic, and make the world safer.
