The essential parts of the Under Vehicle Inspection System SecuScan® are:

  1. Scanning Unit
  2. ScanStation (Workstation)
  3. Start/Stop Sensor
  4. Traffic Light
  5. ANPR Camera (optional)
  6. Scene Camera (optional)

Depending on the system version the system is available with a stainless-steel construction (permanent system) or with ramps (mobile system).

Through a small slit in the scanning unit, the camera captures the entire underside of a vehicle as a high-re­solution color image.

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 vehicles will be saved in the database with its license plate number which can be entered manually or by an optional ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) System.

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 changes within seconds. This comparison is available as Visual Comparison (manual check of current scan and latest scan of database) and Automatic Foreign Object Detection (detected changes will get highlighted “in red”).


The SecuScan® system is equipped with an Automatic Foreign Object Detection Algorithm which is supporting the detection of explosives, weapons, contrabands, etc. The current scan is compared with a former scan and any differences found on the image will be highlighted to the operator in red.

  • Deployed in almost 50 countries worldwide under all climate conditions


SecuScan® Automatic Number Plate Recognition System (ANPR)

The SecuScan® Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) decodes all kinds of vehicle plates with high speed and precision.

SecuScan® Driver Camera

SecuScan® provides different kinds of solutions to take an image of the driver.

SecuScan® Scene Camera

The integrated SecuScan® Scene Camera creates e.g. a top-view-photo of the vehicle while driving through the inspection area. With this solution the operator is able to check the roof of trucks and other vehicles for contrabands and unauthorized persons, which are trying to hide.
