Bullet Control

This concept sets its sights on making a social impact.

RFID tag enabled bullets

We've all heard about so called 'Smart Gun' technology, but a much simpler solution will come with the  innovation of bullet manufacturing and assembly.

Live ammunition detection

RFID tagged bullets can be detected with radio transmitters

Security perimeters

Schools, government institutions, and private enterprises can install guardians to detect the movement and presence of RFID manufactured bullets.

Loaded guns are the danger

The technology for inexpensive RFID tags already exists, and is experienced daily by the general public. With appropriate legislation, and minimal investment, a handful of bullet manufacturing corporations could revolutionize the industry.

Economic development

This concept proposes validation and implementation. RFID enabled bullets and bullet-free zones would encourage economic development and satisfy gun and safety advocates alike. Please review the presentation below for more detail.

Design for Social Good

The challenge is to provide a technical & design solution to address the issue of gun control and gun violence. It is Project TRGR’s premise that a seemingly simple idea can spawn a systematic and logical solution to protect our schools and institutions from deranged individuals. It is the project’s further assumption that ammunition itself poses a greater threat to society than the gun itself.  A weapon is only lethal if it is loaded. An estimated 10 billion bullets are consumed in the US every year. The majority of gun owners and users purchase their ammunition from a handful of manufacturers. Addressing ammunition with a sensible solution could potentially be a boon to the gun industry, and a win-w in for public safety advocates. The infrastructure to support the detection of RFID enabled bullets could be no more challenging to install than the security stations erected throughout college campuses. Information and detection of live ammunition helps to reduce the debated effects of assault rifles, high capacity cartridges, and weakens the controversy over 3D printing technology.
