ZeroEyes, which has created an artificial intelligence-based gun detection video analytics platform, has announced a partnership with Asylon Robotics, which automates security operations by leveraging aerial and ground robotics for perimeter and drone security and intelligence services.
The partnership will integrate ZeroEyes’ human-verified AI gun detection software with Asylon’s aerial drone and robot dog video feeds, giving end users an autonomous response capability in active shooter situations.
“Our grandparents and parents had nuclear attack drills from foreign threats, and we adults had fire drills growing up. Our children today have active shooter drills – things aren’t heading in the right direction,” said Mike Lahiff, CEO of ZeroEyes. “Enabling our AI gun detection technology for use beyond static video cameras is a huge step in combating the mass shooting epidemic that our country faces. Our partnership with Asylon Robotics means we’re able to outfit unmanned vehicles with real-time gun detection intel and tools such as lights and audible alarms to distract shooters, giving first responders time to respond to threats more quickly and safely from the air or on the ground, when every second counts.”
ZeroEyes said its proprietary AI gun detection technology integrates with existing security cameras to instantly detect visible guns within range of the cameras. When a weapon is detected, the company’s military-trained operations center analysts verify the detection and alert first responders within three to five seconds. This agreement expands the company’s footprint beyond static cameras to unmanned systems such as drones and mobile robots.
“All of Asylon’s solutions are built to increase safety and enable the security operations center of the future,” said Damon Henry, CEO and co-founder of Asylon Robotics. “Partnering with ZeroEyes to integrate its AI gun detection solution into our DroneCore platform is a huge step forward in making that happen. Adding AI gun detection to air and ground security robotics is industry-first and directly in line with our mission to help get the right intel to the right people to make better, faster, and smarter decisions.”
