(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - Less than a week after public safety officials launched a text alert system at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, they announced New Technology Monday to further improve safety and emergency response efforts at large events.
The Division of Homeland Security will begin piloting a new system on race day that is designed to bring a "common operating picture" to all of the public safety employees working at the track.
The technology includes the use of 4G Smartphones, tablet devices and integrated incident tracking software called "Command Core."
Command Core involves the use of real-time video and pictures of emergency calls as well as 3d modeling of the track.
The idea is to test the data system and implement it in time for the 2012 Super Bowl.
The ultimate goal is to be able to use the technology during every large event or natural disaster in Indianapolis.
