STANLEY Security, a global integrator of comprehensive security solutions and an electronic security company, has announced its investment in Evolv Technology, the globally renowned company in artificial intelligence (AI)-based touchless security screening.
This investment, backed by STANLEY Ventures, the venture capital arm of Stanley Black & Decker, forms a strategic partnership between the two companies.
Evolv Express, the company’s touchless security screening system, makes it possible for venues of all kinds to keep visitors safe from concealed weapons, pandemic health threats and intruders. Powered by the Evolv Cortex AI software platform, the system uses proprietary sensors and AI to differentiate weapons from personal items in real-time.
Evolv Express keeps high-volume entrances flowing, by reliably detecting guns and other weapons, as people walk through naturally, without emptying their pockets, bags, backpacks or other belongings. The system can screen more than 3,600 people per hour, which is 10 times faster than metal detectors.
