Emergency Vehicle Operator On-Board Devices: Their Impact on Distraction, Safety and Performance (sponsored by the Transportation Safety Advancement Group)
Thursday, January 22 at 2pm ET.
Speakers: Christine Yager and Tom Ferris, Texas A&M Transportation Institute
The Texas A&M Transportation Institute will explore the impact of on-board devices inside emergency response vehicles. While they cansupport emergency operations by facilitating easy access to necessary information, there is a potential downside to the introduction of these technologies in that they can endanger the professionals and other drivers on the road when driver choose (or are required) to interact with the technology while piloting the vehicle. This presentation will explore the technologies, required interactions and the theories of human information processing as it relates to these issues.
Member Spotlight: Qvision Technology
Wednesday, January 28 at 2pm ET
Speakers: Gregory Yova, President and Founder, Margaret Yova, Vice President, and Mike Paulsin, CEO
Join us for a webinar on Qvision and their live video technology being used to monitor traffic conditions on highways, bridges, tunnels and cargo areas.
Qvision Technology developed and patented a video software product in 2009 to operate BorderTraffic.com, the first and only public information website that provides live video updates of traffic conditions at the San Diego/Tijuana border.
QVision then developed a hybrid DOT specific video which provides live streaming video for TMCs and agency sharing, combined with live video updates for public consumption. The Qvision solution helps DOTs internally share live streaming video and externally distribute video updates, in lieu of still images, via multiple devices (PCs, tablets, smart phones) in the most cost-effective and easy-to-implement way possible. The Qvision solution is especially useful and economical working with cameras that are only accessible via cellular modems.
