This technology was born through REKA’s short collaboration with a telecommunication company in Malaysia. Communication wires underground worth millions were being stolen, albeit them installing a security system at that point in time, the system was being outsmarted by thieves, causing the loss of a lot of money and resources. The former security system consists of multiple sensors down in the steel manhole; adequately sophisticated, but not fast enough with the added time taken for security forces to arrive.
SubSurface comprises of several of our own sensors, catching information such as vibrations, sound and change in temperature. The artificial intelligence behind this technology learns the norm of its surrounding environment such as material vibrations due to passing vehicles, pedestrians, animals or insects. The hole cover, which was made out of steel made it a little difficult for frequencies to easily pass through, but with this system, it was sensitive enough to capture the faint whispers of any suspicious activity beyond the metal piece.
Thieves who are plotting or scouting the area to prepare their theft will leave trails of abnormalities in the readings compared to the norm of the surrounding. This allows earlier prediction of the possibility of theft, getting the area to be red-flagged before anything happens. On the occasion that theft would occur, the authorities would have arrived at the scene much earlier than anticipated, catching the culprit before the act.
