Bah. Forgot the link
Although this thing idea is neat, there is an Israeli company that is currently selling RF tech to do the same thing. It comes in a package the size of a suitcase, and can be deployed without having to put transmitters/receivers all over the place. Check it out.
I actually applied to work for that company but wasn't smart enough. Blasted Israelis and their blasted smarter-than-me-ness.
Google will likely provide a better collaborative product within a couple years
I look for Google Wave to fill that void within 12 months.
The OP is referring to the suspicionless internal DHS (border control) check points.
I can't find anything official from the DHS website, but the claim seems to be that DHS can legally set up spots away from the border and act as if they are at the border for purposes of questioning and searches.
Biden also had the rare luck of working across the street from a regional rail hub. Unless we all start working right next to our regional hubs (not likely) it seems to make sense that local transit has to improve a lot for the overall system to become useful.
Incidentally, I live in the DC metro area (NoVA) close to a metro station. Unless I am going to DC proper or Reagan airport I generally have to drive.
I agree that the software will tell part of the story on whether or not the device is accurate, but I'd be interested in examining the hardware too. It is easy to imagine that varying conditions (temp, humidity, altitude, exhaust, smoker lung, etc) could alter the operation of the hardware even before the software comes into play. How have these variables been neutralized? Casting doubt on the device would be easy.
Casting doubt is what the defense is interested in, but what the public should really be interested in is the test data (from an independent third party). Have they conducted appropriate tests across sufficient body types and environmental conditions? Lets see the results.
I would think evaporation would be a large consideration, no? If you go to a historically dry place and make large (shallow?) pools of water it may get quite expensive to keep filling them up.
I would think a sunny, humid, place with cheap undeveloped treeless land would be ideal. A swamp somewhere?
If at first you don't succeed, you are running about average.
