Vancouver, British Columbia – October 27, 2020 – First Responder Technologies Inc. (“First Responder” or the “Company”) (CSE: WPN | OTCQB: WPNNF | FWB: 3WK), a developer of WiFi-based technologies for detecting concealed weapons and for deterring mass shooting and terror attacks involving concealed weapons, is pleased to announce that it has completed development of the Alpha version of its SentinelTM Vision Camera and the accompanying, proprietary computer vision model for weapon detection.
The SentinelTM Vision Camera is an advanced security camera and computer vision platform that gives users access to innovative weapon detection technology. The camera, which is designed and manufactured by First Responder, interfaces directly with First Responder’s Threat Management System (cloud-based user application) on any connected device.
SentinelTM Vision Camera features are expected to include:
- First Responder’s proprietary model for the detection of long guns, handguns, and knives
- Edge-based AI computing with a 384 GPU core/48 tensor core computing module
- High-end 4K Video with day and night operation
- Multi-path connectivity via Ethernet, WiFi or cellular
- 5G-ready cellular backup for robust and reliable performance
- Indoor and outdoor use
The use of edge-based AI technology enables the following key factors:
- Plug-and-play: does not require additional hardware on premise
- Eliminates recurring costs for cloud-based AI computing
- Maximum privacy: all data stays within the system by default, and no outside personnel will view or manage the system
- Minimal weapon detection latency due to detection occurring on the device
- Robust operation: connectivity is not needed to detect weapons
The SentinelTM Vision Camera is designed to provide leading security camera and computer vision capabilities in a package that end-users should be able to independently install and operate. The system will not depend on third parties or integrators for installation.
Sales of the SentinelTM Vision Camera alpha-version to key partners of First Responder are expected to begin in December 2020.
