The future of security force communication
Setting out to tackle real-world challenges in the fight against terrorism and crime, a team of researchers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Transportation and Infrastructure Systems IVI in Dresden and police officers have developed a new, future-ready technology for sharing information and coordinating in the field. The developers’ efforts have earned them the 2020 Joseph von Fraunhofer Prize. The solution has since been adopted throughout Germany on the merits of its great practical benefit and acceptance on the part of users.
