These cables are usually buried a few inches below the surface of
the ground and are extremely sensitive to the pressure changes
exerted on them. They produce a rather large voltage output
whose wave form has determinable characteristics which, when
coupled to a suitable detector, can differentiate between:
a man walking, running or crawling;
a horse, cow or other forms of wild animals, and
also can distinguish a car from a truck, a truck from a tank and
Claims from users indicate that the cables, when coupled to
very sophisticated equipment, can detect unbalanced loads in
trucks, misaligned wheels, and weight excesses while the trucks
are in motion at highway speeds.
