AR display on firefighter’s helmet could increase safety
We’re constantly looking for innovative ways to improve the Springwise experience, and so we’re now introducing BeeLine Reader, a new technology that helps you read more quickly and efficiently. To learn more about BeeLine Reader, an award-winning startup funded by Intel Capital, see BeeLineReader.com.
US-based Qwake Technologies has created a system that could help firefighters get out of a burning building five times faster. Thermal imaging technology has long been used by the emergency services to find people when visibility is poor, but the firm’s new C-Thru system provides real time navigation through a transparent AR display that is placed directly in the firefighters’ line of sight. By overlaying computer vision on top of a user’s environment, C-Thru provides a firefighter with the information they need in an emergency situation and helps them get to people in need.
