Internet of Things (IoT)

Real-world applications of the online and Internet of Things (IoT) revolutions are gaining track on the digital realm. The IoT has long shown promise for improving public safety and health due to its ability of improving the efficiency and accuracy of current processes. Advances are quickly being made in relevant IoT applications, such as GPS-mapping technology, wearable tech, and smart objects. Internet of Things (IoT) technologies have a great potential to aid first responders by giving important insights when they need them most.

What do we do?

PSCE developed a White Paper on IoT (Internet of Things) which describes use cases for IoT in Public Safety. The scope of the white paper is to describe a selection of use cases that demonstrate the potential of IoT using different technologies: licenced and non-licensed as well as standardised and proprietary. In 2019, PSCE dedicated a session about IoT for PPDR during its bi-annual Conference.

The objective of PSCE’s White Paper is to show how IoT can be used to aid the practitioners in public protection and disaster response in saving human life and help local communities tackle emergencies and dangerous situations, by deploying sensors or devices to monitor the environment (e.g. air pollution, river water level detection, fire, gas detection) or in controlling devices such as remotely accessing door locks.
