Activation of Body-Worn Cameras without Responder Manipulation Operational Field Assessment Report

Hitron Technologies Inc. (Hitron) developed the body-worn camera prototypes that were assessed during this operational field assessment (OFA) to address these limitations for U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate’s (S&T) First Responder Technologies Division (R-Tech). The prototypes were designed to automatically activate based on trigger signals transmitted wirelessly from any of four critical event sensors: a holster sensor that detects the unlatching of a holster weapon retaining strap, an occupancy sensor that detects responders exiting their vehicles, an audio sensor that detects elevated sound levels and a hemodynamic sensor that detects an increase in the wearer’s pulse rate.
