Smiths Detection rolls out new Automated Object Detection Algorithm

Smiths Detection rolls out new Automated Object Detection Algorithm: Smiths Detection, a security screening solutions provider, has expanded its collection of automatic algorithmic methods for object recognition by launching iCMORE Prohibited Items.

The AI-powered solution can detect objects that pose a security risk during airport security checks.

They may include grenades, cutting caps for blasting, knives and axes for cutting, scissors ammunition, and firearms, among other blunt objects.

According to the seller, the program’s user-friendly feature and easy-to-use interface require no training for use.

The brand-new algorithm for automated detection will initially be compatible with Hi-SCAN’s 6040 CTiX Computer Tomography (CT) passengers scanner at checkpoints.

The system will be gradually implemented across both dual-view and multi-view checkpoints offered in unregulated and regulated markets.

Cymoril Metivier, Smiths Detection’s Global Director of Digital Market, commented: “With the well-documented staffing issues and increasing passenger numbers at airports, iCMORE Prohibited Items will be an instrumental factor in improving operational efficiency and throughput while also cutting operational expenditure and streamlining resource planning.”

iCMORE Prohibited Items is striving to obtain Europe’s Civil Aviation Conference’s (ECAC) latest Automated Prohibited Items Detection Systems (APIDS) certification.

The goal is to enable more automated screening at airport checkpoints, allowing an alarm-only view of X-ray images that reduces the need for manual review of images.

Centralized Image Processing or remote screening (CIP) utilizes one location to review X-ray images taken from multiple systems worldwide, speeding up the manual review process.

Smiths Detection’s new product will enable airports to increase efficiency, lower operational expenses, and plan resource allocation more effectively in order to minimize the effects of high traffic volumes and staff shortages.

Last month, the company unveiled the iLane A20 automatic tray return device developed in collaboration with Interroll.
