Georgia Aquarium, the U.S.'s largest aquarium, has installed weapons detection technology to expedite security at the building's multiple entry points. Located in Atlanta, the aquarium has seen a 15% increase in guest experience scores since installing the solution, while shrinking the security system lobby footprint by 50% and reallocating half of security staff to areas other than the entrance.
Evolv Express, the weapons detection system from Evolv Technology, leverages artificial intelligence (AI) weapons detection algorithms to detect and identify a person carrying a weapon without slowing the flow of visitors. This reduces unsafe crowding, lowers the risk for human error and removes the tradeoff between keeping a venue safe and providing a good experience for visitors.
The screening system is currently in place at each guest entrance of the aquarium. Guests will not have to stop, empty their pockets or have their bags checked unless directed by security.
