Connecting with the streets
Motorola delivers advanced control room capabilities to the streets with its Connected Vehicle.
Motorola Solutions demonstrated the power of its integrated technology ecosystem by taking its Connected Vehicle to the streets of Europe en route to Critical Communications World in Helsinki.
When emergency responders are on patrol, situational awareness bolstered by knowledge, collaboration and efficiency is imperative.
Motorola Solutions says bringing the functionality and connectivity of the control room to the vehicle, its video security systems, digital evidence management solutions and hands-free two-way radios provides frontline teams with “comprehensive awareness, which is fundamental to safety, productivity and response”.
From its starting grid in Denmark, the Connected Vehicle made its way across Europe to showcase its fully connected and integrated technology to customers, channel partners and media.
The Connected Vehicle can quickly be turned into a mobile command point with the tools and information that frontline teams need to help deliver better public safety outcomes
The Connected Vehicle is making its tour via Denmark, Sweden and Norway before arriving in Finland where it was the centrepiece of the Motorola Solutions stand at Critical Communications World from May 23 to 25. It will then tour through Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg and France on its return leg to Motorola Solutions’ Innovation Centre in the UK.
Motorola Solutions’ Connected Vehicle is equipped with advanced cameras and video analytics, software, voice command for safer driving and the latest Tetra radio solutions, helping frontline teams observe and analyse what is happening inside and outside the vehicle.
By constantly scanning the surrounding environment, the vehicle identifies and sends immediate threat alerts while providing frontline teams with the tools they need to process, share and save records and evidence with accuracy and efficiency.
“The biggest challenge in incident response today is access to real-time information for safer and more efficient decision making,” said Ian Williams, software consultant for EMEA at Motorola Solutions.
“Whether on patrol, conducting a roadside stop or filing evidence for an investigation, the Connected Vehicle can quickly be turned into a mobile command point with the tools and information that frontline teams need to help deliver better public safety outcomes.”
