Covert gun detection looks to prevent mass shootings
Gun control has been a major topic in the United States recently and many Americans have expressed their opinions at protests. While gun regulations are a reasonable option to make schools and other public buildings safer, Patriot One Technologies is working on a screening system to accurately detect citizens with guns, knives, and bombs on them.
The PatScan system can perform a full body scan discreetly since the hardware can be hidden in walls and ceilings. The CEO has addressed that there are no privacy concerns because the system doesn’t generate any images. Instead it acts similar to a metal detector and informs security if there is any potential of dangerous weaponry. It uses AI to learn information about the types of materials and shapes so it is constantly evolving. There are plans to implement this system in casinos and schools in the near future.
Do you think that this can help lessen the amount and impact of mass shootings?
