Israeli tech companies are working on an airport system that can detect emotional strain in a passenger – a specific kind of strain that is associated with people who intend to commit an act of terror.
WeCU (pronounced 'We See You') Technologies uses psychology and physiology to thwart evildoers. The WECU system puts subliminal images and remote sensors in the environment, causing wrongdoers to have involuntary reactions like raised blood pressure, increased heart rate or sudden, rapid breathing. These reactions are instantly picked up and analyzed in real time.
WeCU has received a grant from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), an agency of the U. S. Department of Homeland Security. Once implemented, WeCU technology will keep passengers in airports from Tel Aviv to Toledo a whole lot safer.
