Helping Firefighters in Mission-Critical Rescues with 5G

In episode 3 of Tech Lightning Rounds, Beth Kindig goes directly to the source of 5G expertise and hosts discussions with technologists who specialize in the field. Interviews are held in “lightning round” format, which are rapid interviews with tech experts for immediate depth on each topic.

Qwake Technologies is a testament that real-world problems can be solved with the use of augmented realty and 5G-enabled devices. The company has designed the C-THRU operating system that is designed to help firefighters see in smoke-filled and zero-visibility environments. In episode 3 of Tech Lightning Rounds, Beth Kindig of Intertrust Technologies puts on the mask and navigates a pitch-black room in order to save a baby-like doll, find an escape ladder, and identify which wall the fire is burning behind with the use of heat maps.

5G will improve speeds at up to 100x faster than 4G. This lower latency will help augmented reality devices, as well as virtual reality, transmit without skipping or losing connections. Qwake improves the current thermal imaging options by offering hands-free navigation and an AR video feed. This results in enhanced cognitive abilities which help to increase the accuracy in critical situations.

Listen to this exciting dramatization of 5G and augmented reality alongside expert interviews with Verizon, and a disruptive startup, Mutable.
