CrowdOptic incorporates AI to automatically detect an incident; uses engagement geometry to determine the geolocation of such incident and automatically dispatch drones to the area; and determines the best video feed of the incident from available IoT devices and cameras in the area--highway cameras, drones, security cameras, body cameras, car cameras, etc.  CrowdOptic integrates with Avaya's 911 systems to automatically send the best video feed (without human intervention) to Avaya's system in the central office, where human dispatchers can use such feed and accompanying metadata to coordinate with nearby emergency workers.
