Motorola Solutions' police car of the future, launch at TechLeaders Forum 2014 at the Gold Coast.

Data communications company, Motorola Solutions, has launched a concept patrol car intended to serve as a "virtual partner" for emergency services by creating a fully-integrated mobile communications experience.

Inside the vehicle is an array of mobile computers purpose built by the vendor, multiple cameras with video recording capabilities, automatic number plate recognition technology, an integrated console that controls the radio, lights, and sirens, as well as movement sensors.

The technologies create a two-way communications portal which allows the vehicle to be simultaneously connected to both officers and command centres; the command centre can capture data from the vehicle while transmitting real-time video and mapping to the vehicle.

According to Motorola Solutions Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ) managing director, Steve Crutchfield, the in-built scanners and sensors allow the car to detect when an officer exits, draws their gun, or is in danger.

Video recording is automated, and information can be transmitted to an officer's mobile handheld computer when away from the vehicle.

Each vehicle can be customised as to the customer's operational requirements. Motorola did not provide any pricing information.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
