Smart Technology Research

We started smart gun research and design in 2016. In summer 2017, our teams were selected as finalists and had a presentation in NYPD Headquarters and a conference call with one of the jurists. Last week (September 19) we presented the results of our study in Smart Gun Expo at Brooklyn Borough President Hall. Though these processes, we learned many social aspects of smart guns. Other finalists did also great work including teams from NYU and Pratt Institute. The winner is Team Autonomous Ballistics from NYU. Congratulations, Team Autonomous Ballistics! The following links are articles about the Expo:
