This paper presents an application of magnetovision based measurements to develop a method for passive detection of dangerous ferromagnetic objects. Scanning system was designed and built to study the magnetic field vector distributions. The measurements of the Earth's field disturbances caused by ferromagnetic objects were carried out. The ability for passive detection of selected dangerous objects was demonstrated. Further data processing allowed for determining the (x,y) coordinates of the object relative to the plane of measurement, and even the possibility of calculating the distance from the object. The results obtained indicate that it is possible to detect and determine the location of dangerous ferromagnetic objects. This opens the new way to use magnetovision in public security systems, in particular for the detection of dangerous objects by police and sapper robots.
