Delivering resources to save time, lives, and money

Connected Vehicles & Emergency Response


On August 30, NOCoE participated in a demonstration on how Connected Vehicle technologies will benefit emergency responders. This demonstration, held at Penn State’s Larson Institute test track and in conjunction with the ITS Pennsylvania and Mid-Atlantic ITE Annual Meeting, featured two demonstrations: the Volvo Connected Truck and its automatic engine breaking system when approaching an incident scene, and Southwest Research Institute’s Emergency Vehicle Alert application, installed on a rental car and ambulance. Skyline Technologies also provided their incident zone vehicle that produced live video stream of the demonstration with their WTI Sidewinder camera. This Video is part of NOCoE You Tube Channel.
