The IDL Fastlane Range
All Right Now chose the IDL Fastlane range entrance range as one of its core products for a number of reasons. The range has been developed to meet the changing requirements of the modern building environment. The wide variety of solutions are designed to meet the different balance of security, convenience and aesthetics you require.
Technical innovations mean that a single lane can meet the ever-involving disabled access (DDA) requirements to allow both disabled and able-bodied persons to access through the same gate. In addition the manufacturer is committed to meeting its environmental obligations and sources all its parts within a 20 mile range of its factory in Heathrow.
The Fastlane had been designed using the latest infrared technology, combined with either physical glass doors or just the optical sensors.
All Right Now is committed to making the project a success from helping with initial security assessment to product selection and the implementation of a successful entrance control solution.
Advanced Intelligence is at the heart of a Fastlane system is a multi-infrared beam matrix coupled with a custom designed microprocessor using a neural network to run an opinion forming “entity management” system.
The advantage of this system is that it ‘thinks’ in real time. When beams are broken the system analyses the speed and pattern of the beam breaks and then links associated beam breaks to entities. The result is that the system can accurately position the size, shape and speed of individual entities in the lane. By accurately positioning entities in the lane the system can accurately detect tailgaters as close together as 5 mm.
This advanced technology allows the system to operate more safely as it forms an opinion as to whether the barriers’ can safely be closed based upon knowing where the people are in the lane, how big they are and how fast they are moving in relation to the barrier’s position; this reduces the chance of a collision between the users and the barriers and it has the added benefit that the barriers can close more tightly behind authorised users thereby closing the lane to unauthorised users.
Another advantage of being able to track multiple entities in the lane is that the system does not have to wait for one authorised user to pass through the lane before a second authorised person can begin to be processed. This generates much faster throughput rates.
Finally, if additional beam breaks occur whilst an entity is in the lane the system decides whether they are associated with existing entities in the lane or represent new ones entering the lane. This results in many fewer false activations from umbrellas, briefcases, coats etc.
