Abu Dhabi – March 10, 2018: G4S UAE, the world's leading integrated security solutions provider, showcased augmented reality (AR) smart glasses at the recently held International Exhibition for National Security & Resilience (ISNR) exhibition in Abu Dhabi, which is a major boost to the security sector.
G4S presented a range of innovative smart security solutions including electronic monitoring system for offenders. G4S also replicated a security control room to give attendees a look into the system that ensures security and is capable of handling emergency situations at a place or event.
The AR smart glasses allow the officials to detect and single out offenders that are on the criminal or wanted lists in the UAE. The smart glasses create a red circle around the face of anyone with a criminal record thereby benefitting the wearer by providing information in real time.
The electronic monitoring technology for offenders is a wearable device that can be used as a measure in place of a fine or remand in custody. This is an effective means of control to allow individuals to serve part of their sentence in the community. This device saves time and money for the government by providing real time tracking information (using GPS).
These systems are exclusively developed for G4S by partners and are already in the implementation process in UAE, where G4S installs, integrates and maintains these devices for clients. G4S has been exclusively demonstrating and having pilot runs for potential entities to adopt these smart security solutions.
Grant McArthur, Managing Director Security Systems at G4S UAE, said, “The ISNR is an excellent platform for G4S to demonstrate innovative solutions in the electronic security sector. We deliver design, installation, integration and maintenance services through the implementation of globally proven G4S solutions. “
“This year, we set up a full-fledged control room at the G4S stand. The visitors got the opportunity to experience the functioning of a control room. Our expertise lie in choosing the right innovative technology, custom designing the area and manning the control rooms to safeguard a location - from a mall, a park, event to an airport. G4S has been successfully implementing such projects for the past 24 years in the UAE. The UAE government lays great emphasis on homeland security and we are happy to be a part of initiatives that contribute towards it”, he added.
“We have received an overwhelming response at this year's ISNR. Our AR smart glasses and the GPS Electronic monitoring system have created massive interest and we hope to see more organizations implementing such security systems. Our approach for the future is to integrate more smart solutions into our services. Artificial Intelligence is the way forward and G4S has embarked on the journey to include AI as a futuristic tool into our solutions”, McArthur said.
Alida Scholtz, CEO and MD at G4S UAE, said: “It was our pleasure to be the Innovation Partner of ISNR, this event allowed us to showcase our leading security-based technology to a wider audience. We collaborate with UAE government security regulators to ensure safety and security of those whom we partner with. G4S provides innovative security solutions to public and private sector in the UAE and globally.”
