Reports have emerged that Motorola Solutions is examining ways in which virtual reality can be put to use to rescue life. The technology can put an expert at a remote control center right in the middle of an accident or any other sort of emergency situation.
While VR is primarily used for gaming purposes, in future, the technology can be used to things outside the realm of gaming. It’s easy to forget the potential this particular technology has, it easy to be lost in the virtual world and forget about the potential uses and benefits of virtual reality.
BMW is already using the VR technology to accelerate their automotive design process. Motorola Solutions is working towards a nobler cause, using VR to save live! They are trying to harness all image, data, and information from different channels that’ll help experts to take charge of an emergency situations.
Speaking this, Jim Mears, senior vice president, Motorola Solutions North America Sales said: “Law enforcement agencies have access to data from multiple sources including 9-1-1 calls, live video feeds, social media activity, nationwide databases and more. Motorola Solutions’ CommandCentral platform captures this information and turns it into real-time intelligence that helps first responders resolve incidents quickly and even prevent them from happening.”
Motorola Solutions have developed something called a proof of concept Virtual Command Centre, that uses both Eye Interaction and Virtual Reality technologies. The technology is aimed at produced swift result at emergency scenes. Users can quickly navigate and share vital information from the accident scene. It’ll help users (be it the ambulance crew or police department or the fire extinguishers) manage the situation better and guide the people on the scene.
The system that’s been developed by Motorola Solutions was demonstrated fro the first time at the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) conference 2016 on August 15. The conference was held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
“The Lake County core network and many connected sites on this P25 mission-critical communication system are managed by Motorola Solutions,” said Greg Holcomb, Lake County public safety communications technology manager. “With their robust managed services offerings, the company ensures 24×7 availability, reduced risks and maximized performance for our public safety network.”
