One of the iPhone’s sensors is capable of detecting hidden cameras and microphones. This way people will be able to know if they are being watched
The iPhone It is one of the best-selling devices worldwide, however it was recently revealed that this device would be capable of detect hidden cameras and microphones.
The University of Singapore announced that it has developed an application that uses one of the sensors from the Manzana and in this way people will be able to find out if they are being watched.
This is possible thanks to LiDAR sensor that is present in the iPhone Pro. According to specialists, this could not only be used to improve photographs and applications for augmented reality.
According to its developers, the fact that people can detect hidden cameras and microphones can be very useful. After the reports of the use of surveillance in hotels and lodging places have increased.
In fact, it is so prevalent that there is a market for devices to detect them, especially in Asia.
How does the Apple sensor work?
The project known as LAPD it is “capable of detecting reflections in common objects where in theory there should not be a camera, such as a lamp, a painting or a bottle.”
The app uses the information captured by the LiDAR sensor and artificial intelligence to detect hidden cameras and microphones. This is done thanks to the analysis of “different variables based on the reflections produced by the cameras.”
“To do this, it combines variables such as distance, intensity or depth, applying a deep learning filter that collectively detects a hidden camera”
Its creators highlighted that it has an efficiency of 88.9% in the detection of hidden cameras. Although this technology was used in the iPhone, it was found that it could also work on Android devices with ToF sensors.
So far the developers have not released the application, but it is expected that it will soon be available in both the App Store and the Play Store.
