In the security industry, false alarms are another aspect of the business that you must deal with. Within the field, they are known as false positives. False positives are errors in data reporting where a test result improperly indicates the presence of something, whether it is a dangerous weapon or something else when, in reality, it is not there. False positives are a scenario that Gatekeeper Security takes quite seriously when designing and delivering our security technology products. For more information on how security companies try to avoid false positives within their under vehicle inspection technology, read on!
Under Vehicle Inspection Technology: Before Anything Else
For Gatekeeper, a leading manufacturer of under vehicle inspection systems, the very best way to prevent any false positive is by starting with the cleanest image as possible. What we have found is that through combining ultra-high-resolution, virtual 3-D imaging, and foreign object detection sensors , we can produce clean images that show “daylight” on both sides of your vehicle. This keeps false positives at a minimum. When some people think about under vehicle inspections, some might think of handheld mirror inspections, which require lengthy exposure to the vehicle. These inspections take 80% more time than your modern vehicle scan and show a 30-40% view of the undercarriage while offering no type of data collection or reporting capabilities. With something as critical as security and safety, mirror inspections are no longer a great solution.
Seeing is the First Step to Preventing False Positives
Gatekeeper Security employs a layered technology approach to capture the very best possible under vehicle scanned image. In the past, a lot of security personnel in the field had only their own eyes and ears to work with. But with our various under vehicle inspection options, especially with system integration, can help you scan any potential threats. Each layer of the technology enhances imaging so that it’s unambiguous. The two views from the technology scan make it much easier to see any threatening objects that could be hidden on the top of an axel or crossbeam. An overview and driver camera can capture your vehicle’s standard view and display any potential threats on a high-resolution touch screen. This makes the possibility of any false positives little to none.
