Motorola has introduced a new AI-enabled in-car video system designed to be used by law enforcement. The system, dubbed M500, has been designed to enhance awareness and safety and to build trust through the communities which the police serve. With the M500, a video recording begins as soon as someone enters the back of a police car which should ensure any incidents are caught on tape if they’re needed for inspection later on.
Commenting on the new technology, Mahesh Saptharishi, senior vice president and chief technology officer, Software Enterprise & Mobile Video at Motorola Solutions, said:
“Responsibly bringing AI to public safety is essential to drive efficiency, safety and transparency in policing. The simple task of automatically recording an individual in the backseat of a police vehicle is just the start. The M500 represents the future for the police vehicle, where AI and advanced analytics will be able to detect more complex anomalies or threats to enhance awareness and safety for officers and citizens alike.”
To build trust further, the M500 has been designed to be transparent, inclusive, and fair. It includes built-in guardrails, controls, and audit logs that help promote privacy and encourage responsible use. Additionally, the M500 is able to pair with the V300 body-worn cameras to record events from multiple angles which can give those responsible for reviewing footage a better idea of what’s going on. It also works with Motorola’s CommandCentral to send footage to HQ in real-time.
The M500 is available for pre-order now, to find out more head over to Motorola’s website.
