News and Events

Noema, a DSR Corporation company, and Vivotek, a global leader in security surveillance, demonstrated a solution for effective, real-time detection of gun-related security events, in a recent webinar hosted by Security & Safety Things (S&ST). The application is integrated with Vivotek’s advanced AI Box and Video Management System.

The app utilizes the latest Computer Vision and Artificial Intelligence technologies to identify, in real time, if someone in front of the camera is holding a gun in their hand. There are two alarm types that can be triggered: the first triggers if a gun is detected in any frame and the second averages alarm confidence across recent frames.

The demo footage below shows the simple application integration with Vivotek’s Data Magnet App and VMS, along with two real-life gun-in-hand scenarios. The Gun-in-Hand detection application triggers alarms from the real footage, and shows them in a clear and useful interface.

The full version of the S&ST webinar is available here.

The above End-to-End Security Solution includes:

  • S&ST open IoT platform for security cameras
  • Noema’s Gun-in-Hand Detection app
  • Vivotek’s OSSA compliant smart cameras
  • Vivotek’s Data Magnet App and VMS integrated with Noema’s application

The above components enable the solution to effectively detect any gun-related security events in real-time and trigger alarms automatically. You can check out the demo version of the app in the S&ST app store.

Noema leverages more than 20 years of DSR’s proven experience in custom software engineering, encompassing projects of all scales and across many industries. The company is focused on delivering the most up-to-date and reliable AI and Computer Vision solutions for security, manufacturing, retail, healthcare, and smart homes & cities.

ZBOSS Open Initiative Logo

Nordic nRF52833 SoC based on DSR ZBOSS v3.3 firmware has been officially certified by the Zigbee Alliance as compliant with Zigbee PRO 2017 (R22) specifications. The chip has successfully completed the Zigbee Compliant Platform Certification Program’s extensive testing. The manufacturer has been granted the right to use the “Zigbee Compliant Platform” term and all associated logos.

nordic-nRF52833-QIAA Chip

The nRF52833 is a general-purpose multiprotocol SoC with a Bluetooth Direction Finding capable radio, qualified for operation at an extended temperature range of -40°C to +105°C. It supports a number of wireless technologies: Bluetooth Low Energy, Bluetooth mesh, NFC, Thread and Zigbee.

The SoC is built upon 64 MHz Arm Cortex-M4 with FPU, and has 512 KB flash and 128 KB RAM memory. The nRF52833 is an ideal device for a wide range of commercial and industrial applications, including professional lighting and asset tracking.

ZBOSS is a hardware agnostic, cross-platform, high-performance Zigbee software protocol stack developed by DSR Corporation. ZBOSS features cross-platform support, multi-tasking, fixed memory footprint, OS-less configuration, and easy-to-use API.

It is an official Zigbee stack for Nordic Semiconductor and ON Semiconductor and also supports multiple SoCs, MCUs, and transceivers from Texas Instruments, Qorvo, ARM, Telink, UBEC, Microchip, and other chip vendors. Moreover, multiple Zigbee 3.0 certified products are powered by ZBOSS. Over 200 smart devices from more than 40 vendors have been tested, successfully, for interoperability with ZBOSS.

DSR Corporation also announced the ZBOSS Open Initiative (ZOI) at CES 2020 with the goal of creating a shared software platform, utilized and maintained by chipset vendors and consumer product companies. The common platform will allow for collaboration across the industry stakeholders and help ensure interoperability, security, and the advancement of the ZBOSS stack.
