Could Google Glass Make The Police More Efficient?
Will Google Glass be useful in law enforcement and first responders? It sounds plausible. Consider a scenario like this: Ok Glass: take a picture of that license plate, or Ok Glass, search gunshot wound treatment. It could be a valuable tool indeed, and now there's an app that could make it a reality.
Mutualink, a company that makes equipment for everyone from NATO peacekeeping troops to local police forces has revealed an app at APCO, a conference for public safety communications. They provided a couple of examples of how the app could be used. Check out the press release:
- Firemen reviewing the schematic of a building before entering and while navigating a burning structure
- EMTs triaging patients at the scene of an accident with current medical records of victims
- Police being able to watch video feed from school security cameras in real-time during an active shooter scenario.
But then again, who wouldn't want emergency workers to do their job better? Imagine if an EMT could get guidance from a database somewhere to treat a wound, or emergency situation. That sounds like making the job a whole lot faster.
Mutualink, meanwhile, has made privacy a top priority when developing the new software.
