Revamping emergency services technology

Thursday, 10 April, 2008

NICTA, Australia’s Information and Communications Technology (ICT) research centre, has teamed with the Queensland Department of Emergency Services and Brisbane ICT company Locatrix Communications to develop tools to help emergency services stay abreast of unfolding situations.

The Smart Applications for Emergencies (SAFE) project, based at NICTA’s Queensland Research Laboratory, is developing applications and tools to enable the capture and presentation of vital information about emergency situations.

The system will cover events ranging from devastating floods and cyclones to incidents like car accidents and fires.
