Recent wireless innovations allow for radio-frequency-based intelligent proximity sensors which can be strategically placed around an area to create a 3-dimensional radio field. When an object enters this field, it disturbs the radio frequency and, depending on what frequency parameters have been set, can identify objects based on their size, shape and material composition.
When applied in a security context, RF-based intelligent proximity sensors could help unobtrusively scan visitors who are passing through a transportation hub or busy location to identify potential threats such as firearms, knives, explosives or other dangerous weapons. Once a security alert is triggered for a potential threat, security personnel can be notified and can respond.
