Nowhere to hide [CANSEC2016D1]

25 May 2016

Blue Max Canada (Booth 1736) is promoting Gatekeeper Security’s GKR-2011 automatic under-vehicle inspection system (AUVIS), an embedded solution for the fully automatic identification of foreign objects or modifications to a vehicle’s undercarriage.

As a vehicle drives over the dual-view scanner, Gatekeeper technology compiles two high-resolution, virtual 3D digital images of the 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 axle or crossbeam. An overview/driver camera captures the normal view of car/driver and displays this on the high-resolution touchscreen.

After the vehicle has cleared the scanning device, it takes only two to three seconds for Gatekeeper’s automatic foreign object detection software to automatically compare the subject vehicle’s undercarriage to that of a safe vehicle (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.
