This video demonstrates the power of animation to communicate a complex series of mechanical operations that occur in sequence. The system depicted is designed to provide high-energy x-ray scanning of intermodal shipping containers. A target vehicle pulls into a secure space and the scanning system moves down the shipping container, providing images of the contents within the container. At completion the truck exits, and the system resets for the next vehicle.
The use of this simple animation makes clear how the system components function to quickly scan target vehicles.
