CS GROUP communicated about the overall project objectives and the “HERO” concept. The project results of past pilots were also demonstrated, showcasing how novel immersive technologies can equip, enhance and facilitate the operational capacity of first responders. The HoloLens-based demonstration raised a lot of interest and multiple attendees were willing to test the HoloLens and experience the Augmented Reality interfaces currently being developed by CS within the RESCUER project.
The main demonstrated features covered were as follows:
- User localisation on the map
- Environment annotation with geolocalised incidents or points of interest.
- Position tracking feature enabling the FR to go back to his/her initial position.
The possibility to localise multiple First Responder on the map and to implement a bidirectional communication have also been demonstrated.
