Detect Explosives and Contraband in Cars
Published: Nov 28, 2006
Every time we go to the airport we always encountered their x-ray machines, but imagine if we can apply these x-ray machines to detect explosives and contrabands in vehicles. The American Science and Engineering announced their second generation Z Portal, a high-throughput, drive-through cargo and vehicle screening system with multi-view Z Backscatter imaging to detect stowaways, explosives, and other contraband. It generates images from three sides of the object under examination -- for left, right, and top-down screening of the cargo.
