16 May, 2014 - Brisbane, Australia. Dialog’s Google Enterprise Practice demonstrated its Emergency Services geospatial solution, ARGOS Emergency integrated with Google Glass at the ANZ Disaster Management Conference on the Gold Coast in May 2014. Built on the popular Google Maps platform, it enables Emergency Services first responders to access critical, live and collaborative operational data while allowing live video feeds from the incident commanders to be piped into the operations room.
Google Glass has been released in a Glass Explorers program, with developers like Dialog tasked with discovering use cases and building on the new technology. New York Police are currently testing the use of Google Glass with patrol officers, while Firefighters in North Carolina are also trialing Google Glass to assist with fire and rescue on-scene command. Dialog has several pairs of the devices for research and early integration experimentation.
ARGOS Emergency, built on the Google Maps platform brings the power of Google Maps to disaster management, providing simple, familiar mapping technology to the workplace. Google Glass is the next step in augmented operations innovation, placing data in front of users who need to access it, hands free, in critical situations. With ARGOS Emergency, agencies can layer their data on top of Google’s base map and create their own maps and geospatial applications that can be used by their frontline and operations staff, anytime, anywhere. Operators can rely on maps that are comprehensive, easy-to-use and always relevant.
