Scanning underneath vehicles has been a concern for security companies and experts ever since road vehicles became the norm in our society. The methods of under vehicle inspection have changed a lot over the years and have been improved upon as the years pass. However, the idea has remained the same: checking underneath road vehicles is a required security step when trying to find out whether a car is safe accurately. Let us take a look at how the need emerged in the first place, how this technology was developed in the very first place, and where that leaves your under vehicle inspection technology today. Read on to learn more!
Manual Security Inspection Systems
Initially, the very most you can do is have security personnel take a quick look underneath your vehicle and see if anything looks odd. The drawbacks of this are numerous, including that it requires a hefty amount of knowledge on the personnel’s behalf, that it is challenging to get a full view of everything under the car, and that it puts the security expert in a much more dangerous situation. Many started to use handheld mirrors to get a much better look underneath your vehicle’s body in a similar situation. This solution suffered from a lot of the same issues that many other manual inspection methods did too.
Optical Security Systems
Optical under vehicle security inspection systems go back further than a lot of people realize, and the development of these systems has been an affair for various decades. Even then, a lot of the original systems created still relied on a manual inspection element, while images would still be captured and organized automatically, it was still up to the security personnel to make sense of these images. Without a complete understanding of which they’re looking for – which definitely is not always apparent – this does not take full advantage of the possibility of under vehicle security technology.
Improvements with artificial intelligence, machine learning, system integration, and imaging hardware have entirely changed the development of under vehicle inspection. Gatekeeper’s technology is capable of offering threat detection in real-time without the need for any manual work.
