Internet-Connected Guns Are The Next Step For Data-Hungry Police | Internet of Things | Internet of Things & Innovation | Scoop.it

As more technology invades US police departments, that’s what Yardarm is banking on. The 10-person Capitola, CA-based startup makes a tiny piece of hardware police officers snap into the back of their guns that contains an industrial-grade accelerometer and a magnetometer. The device is able to track the location of the gun, whether the gun is holstered or not, when it’s loaded and when it’s fired. The company is also working on being able to tell which direction the gun is pointed.
