Human Presence Detection

AIS is the Australian and New Zealand agent for MicroSearch®. MicroSearch® is a-one-of-a-kind security inspection system that detects human beings by sensing the vibrations caused by the human heartbeat hiding in vehicles or containers that are loaded on vehicles.

The technology is more reliable and cost-effective than other sensor approaches, and safer and faster than manual searches. MicroSearch® can be operated in two modes: standard and enhanced. The enhanced mode is particularly well suited for the harshest of environments, where ground vibration can interfere with detection results. Wired or wireless sensors are available.

How MicroSearch® Works

MicroSearch includes a computer, digital control box, small vehicle and ground sensors and cables. The magnetic vehicle sensors, when placed on a vehicle or a container, determine whether a human is inside without the time-consuming and expensive task of unloading and inspecting the entire vehicle or container and all of the contents. The ground sensors mitigate any nearby environmental vibrations for increased accuracy.

The sensors, similar to those used to measure earthquakes, measure the tiny movements or vibrations transmitted to a suspension system. Based on the vibrations, MicroSearch indicates if an individual is present. In mere seconds, MicroSearch can determine whether or not a further search is required.

Optional wireless sensors offer the same reliability and accuracy as wired sensors, and offer improved flexibility and convenience. They are completely interchangeable with wired sensors, and require no additional investment.
