ZeroEyes to be employed in protecting public transit

PHILADELPHIA – ZeroEyes has entered into a new partnership this week announcing their cooperation with the United Safety & Survivability Corporation to increase safety and decrease gun violence on public transit.

The strategic partnership will resell ZeroEyes proactive artificial intelligence (AI) gun detection solution to United Safety’s customer base of public transit systems in what the company says will reduce the probability and impact of active shooter threats on busses, subways, and other forms of mass transit. The ZeroEyes software works by layering over existing security cameras, and using its AI systems to identify brandished guns while dispatching alerts to security personnel and local law enforcement as swiftly as 3-5 seconds from detection. Detections are verified by ZeroEyes’ team of former  U.S. military and law enforcement specialists.

The United Safety & Survivability Corporation is a manufacturer and provider of safety solutions that delivers innovative tech across a variety of industries including transit, first responder, school bus, marine, military, mining and forestry. “United Safety has worked with nearly every U.S. and Canadian transit agency over the past 20 years, and we’ve seen the challenges that our customers are facing in regards to safety,“ said Joseph Mirabile, President and CEO of United Safety. “ZeroEyes’ innovative solution can help boost safety and confidence for commuters, operators and staff and we are thrilled to include it in our innovative portfolio of product offerings for our customers.”

“Millions of people depend on public transportation in their everyday lives, so this escalating violence must be stopped now,” said Mike Lahiff, CEO and co-founder of ZeroEyes. “The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority (SEPTA)  recently paved the way by becoming the first major transit system to deploy our solution, and United Safety will play a crucial role in connecting us with additional transportation agencies that are ready to take proactive action against gun-related incidents."

Founded by a group of former Navy SEALs and technologists, the ZeroEyes platform has been trained using hundreds of thousands of proprietary images  in order to be the most comprehensive gun detection technology on the market the company claims. It’s currently deployed across a variety of industries in more than thirty states.
