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.

To simplify the correlation between the underside fileadmin/templates/images and the corresponding vehicles, an optional front-end image capture camera as well as automatic license plate recognition can be integrated. The SecuScan® software provides the guards with all collected vehicle data on the control screen. Additional information can be entered manually. Zoom capabilities support the identification of details up to a size of 5 mm (0.2″). This facilitates the fast and efficient detection and analysis of suspicious objects. All the data collected or manually entered can be stored in a database under the vehicle license plate number. In case of recurring vehicles, the software provides the possibility to compare the current underside image with an already archived one of the same vehicle in order to identify potential deviations at a glance.
