This area of DeepX consortium interest and research covers the unique opportunity provided by computer vision and robotics to detect and react to threats at faster-than-human speed (machine speed) potentially allowing to avert life / health threatening events in real-time.

This is relevant, for example, in personal security and defence applications.

A projectile or personal (armed or unarmed) attack onto a person defended by DeepX powered defensive technology would be detected in real-time and well in time to activate an automated response. Such automated response could involve shooting a protective projectile, gas/pepper/paint spray, creating a light/sound distraction, alerting security staff and/or blocking the attackers line of sigh using bright light, laser or other distractions.
