We are proud to announce that VOST Europe has been invited to join the advisory board of the OVERWATCH project, a European initiative that aims to improve situational awareness and crisis management through innovative technologies.
The OVERWATCH project is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. It connects innovative solutions such as augmented reality (AR), artificial intelligence (AI) and positioning systems to enhance the capabilities of first responders and emergency managers. The project will develop an integrated platform that will allow users to access real-time information from multiple sources, visualize data in 3D maps and AR glasses, communicate with other stakeholders and coordinate actions.
As part of the advisory board, VOST Europe will provide feedback and guidance on the user requirements, use cases, ethical aspects and dissemination activities of the project. VOST Europe will also participate in pilot tests and demonstrations of the OVERWATCH platform in different scenarios.
We are honoured to be part of this exciting project and we look forward to collaborating with the OVERWATCH consortium and other advisory board members. We believe that this project will contribute to a more resilient society by empowering emergency responders with cutting-edge technologies.
