What is it?

Shoe Scanner is a floor mounted 3D imaging system. The device uses harmless millimeter wave imaging techniques to inspect footwear to determine if it has been altered or is being used to transport concealed items, such as weaponry, substances, compounds or electronic items.

The Shoe Scanner system can be used at the Boarding pass/ID checkpoint to eliminate the need for footwear removal. This will streamline the security screening process, reduce bottle necks and reduce the number of unprotected people waiting in queue.


How it works?

  • The floor installed, Shoe Scanner system is analogous to flatbed scanner using millimeter energy to create a 3D image of the interior structure of the footwear.  
  • The Shoe Scanner does not require removal of footwear.
  • The image is analyzed by Artificial intelligence to detect any concealments or alterations in the footwear structure,
  • The shoe-scanner connects to computer monitor and automatically alerts operators when a threat is identified.
  • The Shoe Scanner can be used alone or in conjunction with other security screening equipment and retro fitted to existing security apparatus.
  • Safe, proven technology approved for use by US FDA, Health Canada and EU Airport legislation.

Enabling Technology

  • PRT millimeter wave imaging techniques and hardware.
  • PRT exclusive, high speed, digital signal processing and AI to render imagery in under 2 seconds.

Primary Application

  • Rapid screening of footwear without necessitating removal of shoes
  • Safe, proven technology already sanctioned by US FDA, Health Canada and EU Airport legislation.
  • Detection of metallic and non-metallic threats including explosives, weapons and narcotics
  • Screening time 30 PPM (Persons/Minute), with ‘Walkthrough’ under development
  • Ideal for airport terminals, public events and other high throughput, screening applications
  • Prisons/Correctional Facilities

Shoe Scanner Jargon Buster

  • Artificial intelligence (AI) is an area of computer science that emphasizes the creation of intelligent machines that react to consistently to a set of tasks like spotting something that it out of the ordinary. This can be data, a radar reflection or anything you want it to see or detect.
  • Artificial neural network (ANN) has several advantages but one of the most recognized of these is it can actually learn from observing data. Put simply ANN takes data samples rather than entire data sets to arrive at answers, which saves both time and money. ANN’s are fairly simple mathematical models to enhance existing data analysis technologies.
  • IoT - The Internet of things (IoT) is the networking of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and connectivity which enables these things to connect, collect and exchange data. IoT involves extending Internet connectivity beyond standard devices, to any range of traditionally dumb or non-internet-enabled devices and everyday objects. Embedded with technology, these devices can communicate and interact over the Internet, and they can be remotely monitored and controlled.
