Artificial Intelligence Bag Check Scanners Debut at Disneyland Resort

    The artificial intelligence bag check scanners that first debuted at Walt Disney World have made their way to the Disneyland Resort recently.

    The scanners originally appeared at Disney’s Animal Kingdom back on July 11th, and have since been rolled out to the International Gateway entrance to EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and now Downtown Disney at the Disneyland Resort. These are the same scanners that flagged a guest bringing guns into EPCOT back in July.

    The Evolv Express system will not only cut down on the often times large lines to get through the tedious bag check process, it will also allow for more streamlined staffing.

    According to the Evolv Technology website, Evolv Express uses advanced sensors and machine learning to automatically screen for concealed weapons on all employees, contractors and visitors entering your facility without slowing down operations.

    Powered by the Evolv Cortex AI™ Software Platform, Express is the only fast, touchless, free-flow firearm and bomb detection system that screens more than 3600 people per hour (60 people per minute) and gets smarter over time. It keeps high volume entrances flowing by reliably detecting guns and other weapons as visitors walk through at a natural pace.

    By switching to the Evolv Express system, not only does Disney create a more pleasant experience for the guests, but also a more reliable screening and safer experience. Use of this system versus the old bag check used before the parks closed due to COVID-19 also ensures a safer procedure for security Cast Members who are now able to screen from a distance and not have to physically interact with each and every personal item that comes through the screening.
