Build augmented reality interfaces for first responders OR develop smart city data streams to simulate disaster scenarios.
Public Safety operates in challenging environments during emergency response. As America’s first responder community supplements their land mobile radios with broadband communication technologies, there is a need to improve their ability to leverage new technologies with enhanced user interfaces designed around the first responder’s context of use.
Developers have the opportunity to leverage augmented reality (AR) technology, such as heads-up display and holographic interfaces, to convey actionable information to first responders without distractions or cognitive overload.
These solutions can significantly improve a first responder’s situational awareness allowing them to more effectively plan and respond during incidents. Today, however, current advancements in AR technology have been largely unavailable to first responders.
