Telematic Support of Baggage Security Control at the Airport
A key element of baggage security control at the airport is a human - the security screener. He/she performs some of the tasks remotely, and is supported by the telematic system, making the x-ray baggage screening. The aim of this paper was to analyze the dependence of the number of errors on the experience and the frequency of virtual threat images projection (TIP). The study was based on measurements under real conditions at the Katowice-Pyrzowice International Airport. In the framework of this research two basic types of errors made by security screeners were identified. The results show that the number of errors is dependent from both the experience and the frequency of the stimulus, represented by TIP images. As a result, it was possible to determine the boundary level of experience that entitles security screener to independent work. Also the recommended frequency of threat images projections was determined.
