Many people, both pedestrians and those who work in the transportation industry, fail to realize just how many trains exist, as well as how vulnerable to security threats they can be. Cargo transportation networks all around the world count on trains as an essential part of their economy, as it is cheap and effective for transporting goods. All kinds of goods like PPE for hospitals dealing with the pandemic to other valuable materials all have to be protected while trying to go from point A to point B. Our reliance on trains also makes them a serious target as well. If train security is important to you, you should consider using Gatekeeper’s Intelligent Train Undercarriage Scanner technology. Read on to learn about this system’s primary functions!
How Does the System Work?
The Intelligent Train Undercarriage System works like our Intelligent Vehicle Undercarriage Scanner in that it is made up of embedded platform scanning units. The unit is placed between rails and is then used to capture high-resolution, virtual 3D images of the train undercarriage of every car passing by it. Once these images are captured, they’re able to be used to stitched together a fingerprint for every train, allowing the security professionals to determine whether or not any contraband or potentially dangerous modifications have been attached. This can help prevent something like an explosive from being attached to the train and protect the train systems that we depend on.
Why Use Our Intelligent Train Undercarriage System?
This system from Gatekeeper was designed and engineered with speed, efficiency, and precision in mind. In just a handful of seconds, the system could check every single train car to determine if there were any threats present. A human security operator can only do so much, and they might not have the knowledge or capability to check each one. Human personnel also lack the ability to do it with the time and accuracy that the Intelligent Train Undercarriage System is able to. For anybody who takes transportation security seriously, nothing truly stands up to the capabilities that the Intelligent Train Undercarriage System brings to the table. Consider installing this system for your commercial train systems today to make transportation security better.
