If that sounds like science fiction, it’s not. Triangula, a company based out of Oslo, Norway, is exactly doing this and taking advantage of the Apple Watch Ultra’s battery capacity.
According to a post by the company’s Chief Commercial Officer at Triangula, Marius Marents on Linkedin today, he shared how their company is using the Apple Watch Ultra’s sensor technology on a drone to assist with gunshot detection.
The company specializes in different security services. This includes the support of different international and collaborative commercial, government, law enforcement, and military teams and functions.
The company works on richer sensor fusion around gunshot and explosive detections.
The Apple Watch Ultra, in this case, runs the company’s Triangula Scout app in order to detect gunshot noises. The application is probably leveraging the three-microphone array of the Apple Watch Ultra, as this technology reduces wind noise for clearer communications, and the watch provides precision dual-frequency GPS.
In this case, the company is leveraging the Apple Watch Ultra since it has better battery capacity than other Apple Watch models.
