Editor Note - This is a weekly hangcast (podcast using Google Plus Hangout) organized by Man'ority Report.
America is one big gated community. We have gates to keep the bad guys in and we have gates to keep the bad guys out. Automated gates to limit physical access is a multi-billion dollar industry. But surprisingly the sensor technology for opening gates has not changed since World War II. Existing sensor is the so-called inductive loop design which is nothing more than a piece of wire embedded in the concrete pavement to sense presence of a large ferromagnetic body (i.e., your car). Jeff Oldknow is a small business owner who runs a company manufacturing parking garage equipment. He invented a new kind of smart sensor for physical access control. Such an inspiring entrepreneurial story (stallion-systems.com).
