New AI technology to optimize fan safety at Simmons Bank Liberty Stadium

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) – The next time you walk into Simmons Bank Liberty Stadium, new AI security technology will allow you to go through security checkpoints faster and stay safe.

“As we began preparations for the start of the USFL season, we wanted to optimize our security screening technology,” said Thomas Carrier, general manager of Oak View Group at Simmons Bank Liberty Stadium. “At the stadium and across the Oak View Group, we prioritize fan safety while leveraging innovation to improve the fan experience. The start of the new USFL season was a logical point to introduce the SmartGateway Xtract One screening solution. This is one of many prevention strategies that will be in place for the safety and security of fans, teams, talent and staff that we will use throughout the year, including during Memphis Tigers and Southern Heritage Classic games and the AutoZone Liberty Bowl. »

The SmartGateway system uses AI-powered sensors to detect threats by scanning patrons for weapons and other prohibited items.

The technology provides fast, reliable and accurate screening for high-volume spaces and replaces standard metal detectors.

Peter Evans, CEO and physical security expert at Xtract One Technologies, joined Action News 5’s Andrew Douglas on the Digital Desk to talk about the SmartGateway system.
