BUILDING A SAFER EMERGENCY VEHICLE

14 / 11 / 2019

One of Australia’s most dangerous workplaces has become just a little bit safer thanks to ground-breaking development from Fujitsu and Kia Motors Australia.

 


 

Police, emergency services, security services and couriers will all potentially benefit from the work done by Fujitsu in developing a prototype of an artificial intelligence-enabled digital police car of the future.

 

 

 

In collaboration with an ecosystem of partners, working closely with KIA Motors Australia, Fujitsu has demonstrated that it can remove surplus equipment, software, hardware, and cabling from police vehicles by integrating the required information systems and response controls into KIA’s existing integrated systems and entertainment display.

 

 

 

 

 

Fujitsu created a software-based platform that links disparate technologies, reducing the cost of installation and de-installation, while providing a cleaner and safer cabin for law enforcement officers and others who work from their car.

 

Immediate benefits include eliminating issues associated with airbag deployment and the blocking of vehicle controls and air conditioning vents due to the need for built-in personal computers and screens; greater comfort for officers who are in their car for most of their shift and greater police equipment security and officer safety.
