Some of us wonder why we get stopped while entering a building or the airport or malls so the underneath of our vehicles can be searched. At the security checkpoints, you see the security man or woman holding a long rod with a circular base at the tip.
I remember when I used to wonder what it was used for. Anyways that’s what I’ll be sharing with you today; the reasons and importance of the underneath inspection.
Under vehicle inspection is used to detect i.e. explosives, weapons, narcotics and other contraband goods. Manually inspecting a vehicle via mirrors, control pits and lamps is now a thing of the past.
It is also possible with the under vehicle inspection system to detect hidden persons. This concerns people who have hidden themselves in a larger vehicle in order to gain access to a certain location.
How does the under vehicle inspection work?
The scanned images are directly send to an operator to be inspected and when necessary be saved. Through various image editing options, the operator has the possibility to inspect the image from the bottom and to manually add relevant information to the file. This under vehicle inspection can be coupled with a camera for license plate recognition (LPR) so that every vehicle (and the vehicles undercarriage) is automatically stored in the database.
