This is an embedded solution for the fully automatic identification of threats or modifications to a vehicle’s undercarriage. Vehicles drive over the environmentally sealed, dual view scanners which scan and compile two high-resolution, virtual 3-D digital images of the vehicles’ undercarriage to create the latter’s “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 it on the high-resolution touchscreen.

After the vehicle has cleared the scanning device, it only takes 2 to 3 seconds for the 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 threatening objects or modifications to the undercarriage by circling them with a red ring in addition to activating an audio and/or visual alarm.
