Intelligent Vehicle Undercarriage Scanner (IVUS)
Using advanced signal processing to generate a “digital fingerprint” to automatically inspect a vehicle’s undercarriage to identify make and model, detect foreign objects and anomalies, and provide alerts regarding potential threats—all within a matter of seconds.
If you aren’t inspecting the undercarriage of vehicles automatically—why bother?
A growing number of experienced security professionals across the globe have taken this position with regards to vehicle inspections. These same professionals were among the first to embrace the benefits of artificial and or augmented intelligence as a means to overcome the inherent challenges of manual vehicle inspection. Gatekeeper’s development and application of AI to the world of under vehicle inspection has been a breakthrough for the security industry worldwide, eliminating challenges associated with manual inspection, such as providing a comprehensive search of a vehicle’s undercarriage in an efficient and timely manner, personnel conducting a search with little if any knowledge of the mechanical layout of a vehicle undercarriage, and the ability of guards to concentrate and conduct comprehensive searches for many hours at a time in varying work environments.
Immediate Threat Detection
Vehicles drive over the dual-view scanner while Gatekeeper technology compiles two high-resolution, virtual 3-D digital images of a vehicle’s undercarriage to create the vehicle’s digital “fingerprint.” Two views make it easier to see any threatening objects that may be hidden on top of an axel or crossbeam. An overview/driver camera captures the normal view of car/driver and displays this on the high-resolution touch screen.
Foreign Object and Contraband Detection
Automatically identifies the vehicle’s make and model / Detects any foreign objects or modifications / Highlights these changes / Establishes the vehicle’s “digital fingerprint” / Alerts personnel of any threats all in a matter of seconds / High and secure throughput
After the vehicle has cleared the scanning device, it only takes 4 seconds for Gatekeeper’s Automatic Foreign Object Detection software to automatically compare the subject vehicle’s undercarriage to a reference image (stored in the database) and display both on the screen. The system then immediately identifies any foreign objects or modifications to the undercarriage by circling them with a red ring AND activating an audio and/or visual alarm.
