The system is not only able to detect the shooting and determine the shooter's position within seconds but also to estimate the calibre and type of weapon used. Artificial intelligence is involved in identifying the type of weapon, making the system from the Department of Measurement at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of CTU superior to existing technologies. The acoustic detector, which can distinguish gunshots from false alarms with a 99 percent success rate, will be useful for both special military and civilian use in buildings such as schools hospitals, and urban areas.
