Breaking News: First Responder Technologies Demonstrates Advanced AI Open-Carry Weapons Detection Product

First Responder Technologies Inc. (OTC: WPNNF) (CSE: WPN) a developer of WiFi-based technologies to detect and deter mass shooting and terror attacks involving concealed weapons, is pleased to announce that it is developing an advanced AI open-carry weapons detection camera, and successfully demonstrated a proof of concept to the Company’s Board of Directors and Advisory Council at its fiscal Q3 board meeting held on May 15, 2020 (the “Smart AI Camera”).

The Smart AI Camera, which will utilize advanced machine learning and artificial intelligence (“AI“) processing on the edge, is expected to feature live-streaming video analytics technology for smart surveillance and monitoring, and generate early warning alarms for events that have the potential to harm property or persons (including, for example, the detection of openly carried weapons, such as guns or large knives).

The Smart AI Camera, when combined with the Company’s concealed weapon detection technology, is expected to provide comprehensive weapon detection and perimeter protection capabilities for a variety of premises, including expanded coverage for residential buildings and detached properties. As such, the development of the Smart AI Camera marks a notable expansion of the Company business into the home surveillance market, with an increased focus on consumer applications for the Company’s products and services.

“We are especially pleased to make today’s announcement given these trying times.  Our team has continued to work exceptionally hard through this adversity to conceptualize, design and demonstrate the proof of concept Smart AI Camera product we unveiled today.  This innovation in open-carry weapons detection, combined with our WiFi-based concealed weapons detection product, will help to make homes and businesses safer,” said Robert Delamar , the Company’s CEO.

According to data sourced from the World Economic Forum, a significant increase in the unemployment rate, arising from an economic shock, correlates with increased rates of crime.1
