SoundEye is a non-intrusive emergency monitoring system that can be placed on the wall or any surface that passively monitors scream sound event and motion events. The sound event classification technology is based on deep machine learning architecture. The sound event classification technology was deployed for a surveillance platform to classify gun-shots and large vehicle sound. The development of the SoundEye is based on hundreds of hours of verbal and non-verbal data performed by elderly in their apartments.
