Airobotics, an Israeli drone manufacturer partnered with ShotSpotter to integrate gunshot detection services with its autonomous aircrafts
Detecting gun shots in urban areas as quickly and accurately as possible has become an important practice for police to maintain the safety of the region. Now an Israeli drone manufacturing company Airobotics partnered with ShorSpotter, who offer gunshot detection services, for the development of new aircraft that provides gunshot detection and real-time aerial video to help save shooting victims and record situational awareness in urban areas of Israel.
American ShotSpotter is used in around 120 cities in the U.S., the Caribbean, and South Africa. ShotSpotter system uses a microphone network in the neighboring areas for detecting loud impulsive sounds. The new system will analyze millisecond differences in the times at which it detects the sound with different microphones to find the geographical origin of the sound. The closer a mic is to the gun, the sooner it will detect the sound of gun fire. It will use a combination of human staff and AI software for confirm that the sound of gunfire. The current version of the system involves dispatching of police to the location of gunfire as soon as the sound is detected.
The novel system developed under this new partnership of Airobotics and ShotSpotter also involves dispatching police, however, it will also dispatch nearest drone integrated with this new system. The drones will immediately reach to the point of the gunshot. The video camera on the drones will offer better understanding of the situation to the police. Moreover, the batteries of the drone will be charged when they are not in flights. Airobotics plans to use the new system in the urban areas of Israel.
