This event has ended.
In life’s critical moments, emergency responders take initiative. They rely on honed instincts and years of training. They are provided with tools to prepare them for every situation they may encounter. They make split second decisions that often mean the difference between life and death.
Virtual and augmented reality are tools that emergency response industries have embraced for a long time. The military has used heads up displays – one of the earliest forms of AR – in planes & helmet goggles since the 1960’s. Firearm Training Situation Simulators for law enforcement date back to the early 1980’s. Today, VR and AR provide tools for training, logistics, fleet management, operational planning, on-location support, and more to the military, police, fire, and emergency response departments at all levels of government.
Come hear from the experts how immersive technology is supporting the jobs of the people who protect society.
