Access control systems

Johnson Controls Inc., a facility management system provider in Milwaukee, and Newton Security Inc., a security solution provider in Seattle, are offering the Tailgate Detection, Alarm and Recording system to prevent unauthorized entry into secure areas, such as airports and research facilities. Using stereo machine-vision cameras, this system can detect an unauthorized individual who enters a secure area by following closely behind an authorized person. According to Johnson, the Transportation Security Administration has identified this sort of trespassing as a critical problem for securing baggage handling and other airport operations. This system records the event and transmits it to a security office.
