Wearable Technology within the Government space

Over the next few years wearable technology is expected to make an impact in the consumer and commercial market.  Products like smart watches, biometric bands, and Google Glass will change and revolutionize how people will use and interact with technology. The privilege I have being involved in a technology/software company is that I get the chance to try and shape or direct what wearable technology will look like within the government industry. The following are ways I am currently testing wearable technology that could change how Law Enforcement is done throughout the country.


The integration of multiple tools into one device has always interested me and the advent of Google Glass has allowed that integration to be streamlined more efficiently. A Police Officer wearing Google Glass integrated with our software will be able to run license plates hands free utilizing the heads up display. When the officer has an interaction with another person or wants to gather evidence, the officer will simply state "start recording" or "take photo" and our software will automatically attach the video/photo to the incident assigned to the officer.


Knowing where an officer is during a foot pursuit will no longer be a problem with integrated GPS and our mapping software. When an officer is in distress the GPS will automatically inform the nearest units and display information to responding officer’s of the location and problem.  Information and crimes will be instantly relayed between units providing a protective net around an area similar to how social media is currently utilized.


These are just a few of the trends our company is designing within social media and useful technology. At MIR Systems, it's not just a matter of combining these new technologies with social media its about designing and combining these ideas in a way that makes tasks easier, more efficient, and simple to use.
