The field of emergency response vehicle equipment has seen tremendous innovations. Take for example, Verizon Frontline’s Tactical Humanitarian Operations Response (THOR) vehicle, which is an innovative, first-of-its-kind prototype capable of deploying Verizon Frontline technology, including private Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband, along with additional applications and advanced computing solutions for partners including first responders and the Department of Defense. Innovation built onto a uniquely-modified Ford F650 chassis, THOR can help us glimpse a future brimming with possibilities.
Other innovative solutions in the field today include Cell on Wheels (CoW), mobile mesh technology and Mobile Connectivity Trailers (MCTs). These transformative innovations mobilize networks, helping to bring the signal closer to the frontline.
Small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS), such as drones, are being used not only to improve and facilitate connectivity, but capture video otherwise unseen. Drones can help reduce the burden on first responders by being the eyes in the sky to help assess the situation.
With these technological advancements, fueled by 5G and the ever-growing Internet of Things (IoT), emergency vehicle equipment will become more effective than ever.
