Carbyne partners with Edgybees for enhanced disaster response

A US-based public safety technology company, Carbyne, has integrated with Edgybees, a provider of geo-registration software for aerial video that improves response time, accuracy and communications for first responders during emergencies. The partnership brings video imagery to 911 call centres, public safety decision-makers and first responders in real time through drone footage, enabling them to assess situations and efficiently respond based on video of the area in crisis.

Edgybees’ AI-centric software, in combination with Carbyne’s 911 video capabilities, improves situational awareness for emergency responders in dangerous circumstances such as wildfires, floods or earthquakes. Expanding on Carbyne’s existing dataset, Edgybees’ technology delivers real-time video augmented with high-precision geographical registration from any drone, which is then transmitted into any application gateway connector.

The dispatchers and first responders receive an aerial view of the territory, plus additional data points such as specific street names or traffic lights to pinpoint the exact location of the disaster. This approach generates real-time, detailed overlays of roads, key landmarks and other mission-critical data on top of live video feeds.
