What Is Automatic Foreign Object Detection?

Automatic Foreign Object Detection

Automatic foreign object detection is enhancing the way we look at security worldwide.

Automatic foreign object detection or “change detection” is a new wave of technologies that let us detect abnormalities in images. This means automatically checking trucks, cars, and trains for any objects or changes to an undercarriage –and in an era that seems to be dominated by terror attacks and senseless violence, the ability to check for anything that’s out of place has become increasingly important. Gatekeeper Security specializes in automatic foreign object detection and we believe in its power as a tool in the security world.

How Does It Work?

Different automatic foreign object detection systems function in different ways. Some are able to scan an area and recognize if there is a change in between scans; this is applicable for something like an airport’s runway, where debris can cause massive amounts of damage. Alternatively, some automatic foreign object detection systems use cameras to compile high-resolution images and then compare those automatically to reference images.

Automatic Under Vehicle Inspection System

Security professionals across the world are realizing how important it is to implement automatic foreign object detection into vehicle inspection. Simply put: traditional manual inspection techniques are no longer up to snuff. Gatekeeper’s Automatic Under Vehicle Inspection System (AUVIS) is able to identify a vehicle’s make and model, compare high-quality images to reference images, detect any foreign objects or anomalies, and highlight them for a security personnel to clearly see. This fantastic piece of tech can help amp up the security of a secure parking facility, border crossing, or checkpoint.

Automatic Train Undercarriage Inspection

Much like the AUVIS, our Automatic Train Undercarriage Inspection System–the GKR-TR11–performs comprehensive and complete scans for foreign objects and changes to a train undercarriage. Whether it’s a passenger train or a cargo train, the GKR-TR11 is able to scan each train car’s undercarriage and check for anything that is out of place.
