A “virtual wall” will be built between the US and Mexico




The facility will be controlled by artificial intelligence and will prevent illegal attempts to cross the border.





The administration of Donald Trump has signed a five-year contract with Anduril Industries, a company that is committed to installing 200 “smart” space monitoring stations along the southern border of the States by 2022. This is reported by Engadget.

Externally, the proposed device “looks quite simple”. It consists of a tower, at the base of which there are two large solar panels, the energy of which, according to the developers, is enough for the round-the-clock operation of all the equipment of the tower. At the top of the 10 — meter tower, an array of sensors, cameras, and antennas is installed to track animals, vehicles, and people at the moment of crossing the border.

“We will know exactly who is trying to cross the border: a person, a cow, a vehicle, a plane, or a ship,” said annual revenue Director Richard Steckman.

Data from all cameras and sensors will be sent to the border service and law enforcement agencies.





“These towers allow employees to effectively act against criminal networks that facilitate illegal attempts to cross the border,” said us Border control chief Rodney Scott.

However, they decided to take away one function from the “virtual wall”. The system for tracking illegal immigrants will not support facial recognition technology.

“The company deliberately refused to collect personal data. This is not fashionable now,” Anduril said.
