Flir’s wearable sensor for security and public safety operations

First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com

Flir Systems says its wearable sensor platform combines video, audio, location data, Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities and cloud and management software.

Called TruWitness, the real-time situational awareness solution is expected to assist public safety organisations which require on-scene, real-time mobile surveillance. Users can also mount the device on the inside of their vehicle.

Jim Cannon, president and CEO at Flir, says security personnel could stream video of a situation to their command centre and with local law enforcement or medical personnel who are en route to the scene.

The product comes with visible-video, audio, global navigation satellite system, gyroscope, accelerometer and magnetometer sensors.

According to Flir, these sensors combine to send alerts and stream data to a central command centre in real time to ensure full situational awareness and global event handling. 

The solution acts as an IoT device and triggers nearby TruWitness devices, fixed and motorised pan-tilt-zoom security cameras and other connected sensors to act upon an alarm, the company adds.
