At this year’s Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) tradeshow, Mutualink, Inc. plans to unveil their real-time multimedia interoperability for public safety using Google Glass.
The app will allow police and other first responders to share live streaming video with other personnel and communicate with other partner agencies simultaneously, according to a press release.
This technology will potentially allow police to view live video from school security cameras during an active shooter scenario, for example, or show firemen the schematic of a building before entering and navigating a burning structure.
“Mutualink was very fortunate to be part of a select group of innovators given access to Google’s new Glass technology,” said Dr. Michael Wengrovitz, Mutualink’s Vice President of Innovation. “We have leveraged our innovative interoperability platform and the Google Glass wearable hands-free device to create ground-breaking advances that enable anywhere, anytime communications and information sharing.”
