Northeastern University professor pioneers new security technology
NECN - 04/18/2017
The haunting images from the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings still remain with Northeastern University professor Jose Martinez. Four years later, it’s one of the reasons he’s motivated to stop the next one.
“How can I as a scientist, help us avoid situations like that,” asked Martinez.
His team at the university are developing a new scanning technology to detect guns, bombs, or other threats under clothing and inside backpacks.
Unlike the machines at airport security check points, this would all happen in real-time.
