Embedding Security at Border Checkpoints
AI-Driven License Plate Recognition at the Border
There is a constant tension between maximizing border security and minimizing traveler inconvenience. Increasing international travel puts even more stress on our systems. Land border crossings add the movement of private cars and commercial trucks into the mix. Automated License Plate Reader (ALPR) technology has been deployed in both in-bound and out-bound lanes at several US land border checkpoints. ALPR allows vehicles license plates to be automatically checked against law enforcement databases for outstanding warrants or other alerts. This technology is also used to read truck license plates and match the truck with a manifest that has been pre-filed with CBP, again speeding processing.
A leading supplier of border security solutions is embedding VersaLogic’s Lion PCIe/104 OneBank SBC in equipment that is being deployed at US border checkpoints. Introduced in 2017, the Lion includes a seventh generation Intel® Core™ i7 running at 2.8 GHz, integral GPU, up to 16 GB of RAM, dual gigabit Ethernet ports, USB 3.0, and an on-board TPM 2.0 security chip.
VersaLogic’s ability to rapidly support a pre-sales evaluation and the Lion’s wide operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C were important selection criteria for this application. VersaLogic’s reputation for quality and reliability, and willingness to provide long-term product availability were also important deciding factors.
