This system protects, controls and secures regions entered and
exited by vehicles (or other mobile entities) via a Security
Management System (SMS). For
entering vehicles, the SMS: a) senses a vehicle On-Board Identity
(OBI) code (e.g., Easy Pass transponder); or, b) creates a
Characteristics Identity (CI) by detecting several repeatable
characteristics such as model, manufacturer, license plate, VIN,
identification tag/seal, color, shape, physical features, et. al.
The SMS identified OBI or CI can be provided to a data storage
systems for future use to confirm information matches stored
information or that entered by or from other locations for identity
or tracking purposes such as securing or isolating potentially
problem vehicles of any type pending resolution.
The sensed OBI or created CI are assessed by the SMS to: a) identify
known vehicles; b) assess acceptance of vehicles new; or, rejecting
vehicles not meeting any defined parameters. SMS known, returning
vehicles typically include a defined “fleet” population such as a
government, military, corporate, law enforcement, etc. For SMS
accepted entering vehicles, the SMS provides a form of a Ticket/Tag
(TT) or other acknowledgement containing a randomly coded Master
Number (MN) retained by operator to identify the entering vehicle.
When a vehicle is exiting the area or passing from one region to
another, the OBI and/or the CI are read by the SMS to determine the
vehicle’s pass through or exiting rights. Upon SMS confirmation of
the OBI and/or CI, the vehicle operator presents the TT for SMS
acknowl-edgement whereupon confirmation allows vehicle departure or SMS rejection requires resolution to commence.
