ANPR Supplier Teams Up With Gunshot Recognition Experts

ELSAG North America : 16 August, 2010  (Company News)
Number plate recognition system from ELSAG North America to be used in conjunction with Safety Dynamics gunshot recognition system to automatically guide cameras to the shot source and record all vehicle licence plates in the area
ELSAG North America announces a Teaming Agreement with Safety Dynamics to bring their technologies together and produce the most effective law enforcement tool available to date.

Safety Dynamics is currently selling and supporting a system for law enforcement called SENTRI (Sensor Enabled Neural Threat Recognition and Identification). The system is a breakthrough technology that recognizes gunshots, explosive and impulsive sounds with a 90%+ detection rate and a +/- 1 degree field of view and sends azimuth and elevation details to cameras which can then move to the source of the event. The sensor technology suite will capture video images of licence plates located in the area where the gunshots go off as well as video of the shooter. ELSAG's ALPR cameras are the most efficient in the business being able to read up to 3,600 tags per minute at an extremely high accuracy rate.

"ELSAG is constantly looking for new applications and ways to improve our technology to keep America safe," said Mark Windover, president and CEO of ELSAG North America. "We are pleased to build a stronger technical relationship with Safety Dynamics and look forward to building a best in breed complete sensor platform that will keep neighbourhoods safe from gun and vehicular violence."

"Safety Dynamics' temporal pattern recognition technology which provides high speed, accurate detection and localization of gunshots including a multitude of calibres of weapons, becomes much more efficient when combined with the ELSAG APLR integrated sensors. This Teaming Agreement brings to the Homeland Security and Law enforcement markets eyes, ears and advanced situational awareness second to none," said Sally Fernandez, president, Safety Dynamics. "We are delighted to be part of this Teaming Agreement with ELSAG and know that the arrangement will lead to development efforts that will continue to set the tone for law enforcement and Homeland Security."

With the increasing vehicle population comes expanded efforts in law enforcement, traffic regularization and congestion reduction. Prevention of traffic violation and criminal activities are becoming challenging and critical. It is important to constantly update and upgrade the technologies that help to combat crime and keep the citizens of this country safe.
