By Simon Hradecky, created Wednesday, December 08, 2018 16:38:08A tool called “Aurora” that is being developed by the University of Southern California, is the brainchild of Professor Michael Stacey and his team.
The team have spent more than a decade developing this project, which uses sensors and software to detect the movement of objects in the room to determine when the alarm should be triggered.
It will be used by an estimated 10,000 people a year, in the United States, Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom, according to the University’s website.
A spokesperson from the University said the project had been approved by the Australian government and it was working towards commercialisation.
It’s not clear whether Aurora will be a consumer product or a commercial product, or even whether the team is aiming for a global market.
Aurora is available for purchase on Amazon.
