Our award-winning Personal Data Recorder concept is taking shape
Towards the end of 2014, we were proud to announce that we won the Security Innovation Competition with our Personal Data Recorder concept (PDR). The PDR is a small, lightweight device, to be worn by first responders, that continuously records audio, video, GPS location and other sensor data. Data from the PDR serves as objective evidence against individuals committing acts of violence against first responders, which (unfortunately) is a major issue these days. Also, PDR data can be used to quickly and accurately determine the sequence of events in the aftermath of incidents and crises.
Since February 2015, we have been hard at work to turn the PDR concept into a real-life product. The device itself will be our most sophisticated, integrated and miniaturized design yet. We need to be the PDR as small and light as possible - while still being able to record video continuously for more than 10 hours, gathering data from all sensors in real time, and storing and encrypting all data. Beyond the device itself, we are also working on the software application that will combine data from 100+ different PDRs to get a comprehensive and instant overview of even the most complex scene. Initial tests are very encouraging; we're on schedule to start field trials towards the end of 2015. We expect to release the product mid 2016.
