System Overview and Functions
The Under Vehicle Monitoring System SecuScan® essentially comprises a scanning unit, a workstation, traffic lights and a light barrier; depending on the system option, SecuScan® uses hard-rubber pads and aluminum ramps for the mobile system as well as a stainless steel construction for the permanent system.
In addition, SecuScan® can be upgraded with a variety of additional options.
The scanning unit (height = 11 cm/4.3″) consists of a line camera, a mirror and an infrared LED lighting unit.
Through a small slit in the scanning unit, the camera captures the entire underside of a vehicle in moving traffic.
In order to display the underside to scale, different heights of undercarriages (car/truck) as well as the vehicle length are taken into account.
The underside is then displayed as high-resolution image on the screen.
