Motorola Solutions Integrates HERE Venues to Help Emergency Responders - 08/08/2018


HERE Technologies, a global leader in mapping and location platform services, has joined together with Motorola Solutions to equip emergency responders with detailed venue maps for enhanced situational awareness. Motorola Solutions' CommandCentral Aware software, used by emergency response command centres, integrates HERE Technologies' venue maps to guide first responders to the right locations, while adapting to dynamic events in real-time.

Before entering a building, police, fire and EMS personnel can automatically access the latest authorised venue map of the building to know the best entrance and fastest route to someone in need. Venue maps also include the locations of fire extinguishers, defibrillators, and medical kits on premise for quick access.

"Emergency responders rely on real-time and accurate information for enhanced situational awareness and safety," said Jim Leflar, Venues Marketplace Manager at HERE. "We are proud to provide the community with a layer of real-time information that will aid in the speed and safety of first responders on duty."

Motorola Solutions CommandCentral Aware aggregates and integrates streaming video, geospatial data, real-time alerts, resource tracking, analytics, voice, computer-aided dispatch and records information so command centre staff can communicate actionable intelligence to field responders.

"Public safety agencies are leveraging the real-time intelligence technology delivered by CommandCentral Aware to improve response times and achieve safer outcomes," said Andrew Sinclair, general manager and corporate vice president at Motorola Solutions. "Adding building mapping intelligence from HERE Technologies equips command centres with better information so that they can coordinate faster, and provide more accurate responses when seconds matter."

HERE Technologies has more than 50 strategic ecosystem partners that integrate venue maps from building owners and facility operators around the world. HERE provides each building owner the rights to determine how the data is utilised and who, such as emergency responders, can access the venue map.
