Applying wireless technology to help manage emergencies.

By on October 5, 2012

A connected world means a safer world for public safety professionals. The quicker information can be shared, the quicker a response plan can be formulated and executed. With 4G LTE technologies, new advancements like a wireless head-mounted computer and advanced video surveillance systems will help shape the way public safety and law enforcement officials respond to emergencies in the future.

In addition, dedicated LTE public safety networks are being created to supplement agencies’ core platforms with increased capacity, control, security and rich media services.Golden-I

The Kopin Golden-I Wireless Headset is a lightweight, head-mounted wireless cloud computing and communication solution that revolutionizes the way public safety officials can interact with their virtually enhanced surroundings. Operated by speech recognition and natural gestures, Golden-I offers hands-free access to a full PC experience, a virtual display and real-time streaming video, allowing police officers to see the same images simultaneously, all on 4G LTE. Police officers can access maps or video on the small screen attached to headset.

Video surveillance is a crucial tool for gathering information and monitoring public safety, but poor quality video can hinder police efforts. The Panasonic Suite of high-definition network cameras leverages the 4G LTE network for advanced capabilities like auto-tracking of HD images to enable vigilant monitoring of multiple locations.

The connectivity of high-speed data networks will soon give law enforcement officials the ability to quickly receive information in critical situations, while staying out of harm’s way. Not yet on the market, the remotely deployed LTE Rover, with its high-resolution video and audio capabilities and an optional laser scanner, will provide full situational awareness in hazardous environments and unsecure areas without endangering personnel.

Wireless technology will continue to help shape public safety in the future by enhancing collaboration between personnel, allowing for faster and more precise decision making and improving the safety of communities across the country.
